Own two feet

We don’t need others
To end up face first on the floor
We can land up there
All by ourselves.
Other people cannot be
Held accountable
For the poor choices we make.
It is our own feet
That need strengthening
Our own souls
That thirst for redemption.
Rather than searching high and low
For a world that doesn’t offend
Or tempt
Better to find enough light
To keep your feet
From stumbling.
