Life in 100 Words

A Unique look into life, 100 words at a time.

Steppin' (Dedicated to Ladybug)

You're walking now!

I watched as you took two steps with your bowed legs, chubby pigeoned toes and big bright eyes. "What is this feeling?"

You took two steps and fell to the ground, I picked you up and you took more steps, then off running you went.

This will be your life growing up as a beautiful brown girl. You will take steps forward and the world will try to knock you back down, get back up.

I won't always be there to pick you up, so keep walking strong and with your head held high.

I love you.
