There is an immense amount of pride that one feels,
When they are able to act on their own;
Like the way a toddler feels when they have made their first step.
No matter how independent one feels,
No one is ever alone in any accomplishment.
Let not pride deceive you into thinking,
That it was all made possible by you.
When a toddler learns to walk,
Mother had been there nurturing.
When you score high on an exam,
Teacher had been there instructing.
Independence is not being able to do things alone,
It means that you are able to act on your own.
Along the way you will help others,
And they will help you in return,
But it doesn’t make you any less independent,
Or any less proud!
