One Step

Bloom where you are planted.

Sometimes it takes just one

step when you would rather

not put the effort into trying,

when alone sounds safer

than joining the crowd, 

when solace becomes

a hold on you, a way

to become safely lost,

but if you just step,

a whole new world

might open up

and take you to places

those paths of safety

never could, and even

better, you have company

and conversation

along the way, even

companionable silence

becomes harmony

in a way stark aloneness

never could.
