Start Close In

….Start right now

take a small step

you can call your own

don’t follow

someone else’s

heroics, be humble

and focused, 

start close in,

don’t mistake

that other

for your own.

Start close in,

don’t take

the second step

or the third,

start with the first

thing

close in,

the step

you don’t want to take.

 (David Whyte – River Flow: New and Selected Poems)
