A mothers saying.

He stumbled down the stairs again,

He went straight to his mother and hugged her leg,

She gently lifted him and wiped his tears,

And said, ‘ You are stronger than your fears.

An instant smile lit his eyes,

And he repeated his mothers saying not once but twice,

With the little courage he had gathered,

He walked down the stairs not falling this time,

Not falling again.

He grew older,

And the stairs became steeper,

But his mothers saying still rang in his ears,

And he knew he was stronger than his fears.
