My Toes Are Little Soldiers

Sometimes the fear gets to my little soldiers. They freeze.

Cant move.

Can’t walk.

Can’t see forward.

Somehow the captain gets a message through, a message of encouragement to each little soldier: step forward, unite with the rest of your battalion, mobilise, communicate with your allies and step forward.

And it’s not that I’m making great advances or beating records. I’m just catching up with you all, reaching ground where you have already stood, where most of humanity already stands, in the hope that we can move on, step forward together in this pilgrimage.

All for living life without fear.
