Growing Up Is Liminal #WeekendWritingPrompt

When finally

the foot stuck in ‘was’ escapes the mud

and plants itself in becoming

there is a second of achievement,

of fanfare flooding out yesterday’s

shortcomings.

Until ‘becoming’ equals ‘was’

due to the addition of the second

and subtraction of the first.

Already there is the pull

of yet another step

half taken already

and calling.
