Journey, a poem

JOURNEY

My journey of a thousand miles
begins with me stumbling
on the first step. I get up.

The only way to keep going
is to act as though nothing
matters. Perhaps it doesn't.

This journey may lead nowhere,
but I get up and travel
another mile. Why not?

It's poetry mostly because it's formatted as poetry.
