Assembling and positioning fixtures
Surrounding weakened bodies
Living in a world full of hesitation
With no one but themselves.

Fleeing the catastrophic horrors
Reality abolishing porcelain smiles
Living for a successful untouched future
There is no one else.

Overcoming emotional separations
Quietly creeping forward to perceive
Working hard to succeed
For no one but themselves.

Receptive to the mature
Avoiding lives deceiving path
Disarming misfortunes authority
Achieving all by themselves.

Tearing down positioned fixtures
Standing tall with immense strength
Showing the world full of doubt
You can make it, all by yourself.

The author's comments:
Moving forward was written based off of my childhood experiences and who I would like to become in the future. I hope that my readers can relate and realize that they are not alone. Many of us rely on others to help guide us, which in the end doesn't always help us become successful. If you learn to depend on yourself, you can become a successful individual. This poem was structured to show a negative lifestyle transform into a positive one.
