Little Moments

Tumbling toddler,

tipsy and tough –

tirelessly trying

to stand straight up.

Though weak knees wobble

and ankles give in,

each failure compels her

to try yet again.

As eyes monitor movement

smiles radiate pride,

but it isn’t for them

that she tries and she tries.

Something within her

prompts her to stand:

for she was created

to run, play, and dance.
