Poem by year 12 student, James Winter titled ‘Journey of a Thousand Steps’
The first of a thousand steps
Without a doubt it’s a necessity if you wish to begin a journey
Steps determine the path
The stumbling, fumbling gait of a fool
Surely he will falter and fail. His first step was too weak, too fearful.
Steps determine success
The confident stride of one filled with greatness
They shall almost certainly complete their journey.
Even if they were to fail,
Still they learn a lesson.
If they do complete their journey
A new one will soon begin
Steps shall never cease.
