Take one little step

Don’t worry about crushing

The already

Footed ground

Don’t worry about ruining

The cracks in the dirt

Don’t worry about

Ruining the water’s trickling path

And don’t question what

I am asking


Step into my heart

You won’t ruin your blue converse

That have already stepped too much

And you won’t have to fret

About getting a splash of


On your blue denims

Already covered in the dust from the dim sky


You are welcome to

Leave your mark

Come step on the neighboring world

Like many others have

Let your treds from your shoes be seen

And make sure the mark is deep too



Take one little step with one foot

Then the other

Into that little shape of soul

Let the dirt cover your feet

And make that smile visible

For I cannot see it

But I know I will shortly

As soon as you

Step into my heart

I got beat down, rejected, thrown out, abused, cursed, resented and robbed of my inner being. I grew up and I survived. But I carried this pain around with me. I let it build up this darkness within me. So I started beatin down, rejecting, throwin out, abusin, cursin, resentin and robbin ppl of their inner being. I followed the world around so much,…See More
