She tries to stand
She makes several attempts
She grabs and pull herself up
She finally stands
One step at a time, she moves
She moves with the unsteady steps of a kid
It makes people fear she would fall
They reach out to help
She ignores and keep moving
She believes that one day her unsteady feet would be steady
She believes that are shaky feet would be unshaky
Yes, that’s her belief
And that’s what will happen
Unsteady to steady
No matter the unsteady feet, someday it would be steady
Unsteady i may stand now. Steady i would stand tomorrow


I wrote this poem after watching Esther Adigun walk.
