I was told it was easy

To put one foot in front of the other

That is not easy

That is the most difficult thing to do

I can’t even catch my breath

I can’t vocalize a coherent thought

Put one foot in front of the other

That takes effort and energy

Both of which I do not possess

It takes hunger and drive

Of which I have never had

I will focus on breathing

Lungs expanding

Then contracting

They said it was natural

We do it without being aware

I am aware of every pain

Of every pull

Of every tug


First I need to learn to breathe

Then we will work on my feet
