It is never a dull moment so it is always surprising, involved, and I feel like you are growing all the time; You are exploring all new avenues of poetry. You know poetry goes on forever, it’s as wide as a human imagination. There is no end to it. With that in mind, what would you like to call today’s poem?
Joey: “A Journey Begins With One Step Forward”
Rabbi: That is a beautiful idea. I like that a lot, very poetic. It opens up all possibilities. How would you like to continue that line?
Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward, and never looking back to always be a shoulder to lean on with arms wide open and fears listening more than speaking to each soul, that’s why we have two ears and one mouth you need to hear it through your ears before speaking it out loud.
Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — You must learn how to navigate, like the great sailors of old on the sea of the imagination, each step forward it’s a whole new sensation, so be patient my friend, the journey itself will lead us to our destination.
Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Looking for new adventures to see and explore, in life you have to strive for more, our souls will want to stay its path, the path of God is always grand, but just know the walk is hard like walking on sand.
Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — He first ascends into the silence and he hears their ideas that at first he can never speak out loud, until he becomes awakened to the journey of every person and then words find a way from his mouth into our lives.
Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — With your head held high, they say the skies the limit, but I’m the sky, the clouds are my vision and dreams, the sun is my heart warm as can be, the stars are my cells reproducing the spirit within, and the moon is where I land and a new story begins.
Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Walk your walk, and talk your talk and take a look around, see the endless sky and hear the pristine sounds, and then listen to your own voice, pronouncing such wonderful sounds, whether anyone is around or not.
Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Your journey is yours only, so do not feel lonely, as you evolve one thing stays the same, the trajectory of your path will always turn a page, life goes on so cherish the time, take life in control, this journey is mine, now go shine brighter than any star in the sky.
