"Walking" a poem by Jennifer Vess

An automatic activity that is taken for granted until it requires specific effort.

A well-orchestrated symphony of muscles, nerves, tendons, bones, and thought

Blended together to create a beautiful result.

Choose each step carefully, think before each movement.

Know your destination, and select the best route before beginning the journey.

Decide how far to go before tiring out; limit distractions; unload burdens.

Understand the process before engaging in the effort.

The pace must be steady, the exertion consistent.

The reward is in taking the next step.
