To lose yourself

To lose yourself is easy. To find yourself back...

Take two steps ahead. Then four. Glance over your shoulder.

(Whom do you see?)

Steps become a sprint. Sprint becomes flight.

But the you before those steps, before the very first step was taken is gone, gone.

(Tread back and I will be fine.)

But that's not how it works. The steps that you retrace no longer feel like yours.

A place to go back. A restart button. Not there, not there.

(So tread carefully, friend.) 

Don't look back. Don't step back. You don't have to. It will all still be OK.

Keep running.

(Just keep flying.)
