The Moment

Who put us on our way?
Who or what
And when was the moment
In a cavalcade of time and days
That we took that first unknown
Decisive, or hesitant perilous step
Determining our direction?
Was it across a well paved life
Or the slippery slope of pain
And why did we continue?
Where did we feel it,
In our heart out of love or fear
In our bodies out of need?
Did someone reach out to us
With a push or a slap or a helping hand
With a good book or a harsh word
Perhaps a gentle touch?
And how did we react
Did we shy or defy?
Did we blossom or whither?
Who might be the master
Of such consequences,
And when is the time to try…
And why?
