It was my first steps that led me to my first run
The first time I competed in a race
Or the first time I played in a soccer game
It was my first words that led me to my first sentence
The first time I gave a speech before an audience
Or the first time I was involved in an argument
It was my first addition that led me to my first subtraction
The first time I solved for "x"
Or the first time I used a logarithm
However, it was the first time that I held a pencil that led me to the first day of the rest of my life
The first time I wrote a short story: "If You Give A Cat Coffee"
Or the first time I wrote a poem that reflected who I am
There is a first time for everything
And trust me, the first time is always the best time
I want to live a life of firsts, and not a life of nevers.
