One Leg

Standing on one leg
An easy thing to do
Balancing not too hard
For a minute or two

But gradually
You get wobbly

You lean this way and that
Your thigh begins to tighten
You sense the limitations
Although it does not frighten

But staying that way
You soon change your way

Now imagine it forever
Always hopping on one foot
Always leaning to one side
Doing your best to stay put

But also see
Your temerity

You wouldn’t just give up
Your determination would grow
You could master yourself
From your head down to your toe

And with confidence grown
You’d be standing on your own
