A poem, written by Elena Mikhalkova


My grandmother once gave me a tip:

In difficult times, move forward in small steps.

Do what you have to do, but little by little.

Don’t think about the future

or what may happen tomorrow.


Wash the dishes.

Remove the dust.

Write a letter.

Make a soup.


You see?


Advance step by step.

Take a step and stop.

Rest a little.

Praise yourself.

Take another step.

And then another.


You won’t notice, but your steps will grow more and more.

And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.
