Forward is forward 

No matter how slow

One assured step 

At a time

That’s how you 

Should go

Covering ground

Reach for your goal

Looking back 

Will put you in reverse 

That’s no blessing 

But certainly a curse

Forward is forward

Even walking on hot coals 

Don’t mind the pot- holes

Even with sore soles

Just remain keen

Until you

Realise your dream
