First Steps

[I have always been fascinated by photographs of baby elephants taking their first steps - there is something so universal in that bond between mother and child]

You try to take a step and nearly fall. You can’t understand why you need to walk at all. But, baby, there is a whole world out there, waiting to be explored. There are places to go, vistas to see. Unless you learn to walk, how will you ever make this world your own?
I know you feel you will never learn. But that is what I am here for – to assure you it can be done, and it can be done by you.
The first steps are the hardest, but when I am there, you will never walk alone.

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
