One Day, One Step

A million ideas floated in my mind,

But to each of them as I spoke,

I said, one day, one step..

First came success.

Oh, I can put you up there,

Where you stand alone,

Looking at others, left far behind.

One day, one step, I said,

Am not ready to climb the lonely ladder yet..

Next came money.

Oh, I can make your vaults clink,

Till you hear no sound of emotion,

Spending mercilessly on you without any care.

One day, one step, I said,

Am not ready to indulge in more than my needs yet..

Then came fame.

Oh, I can make you a social star,

Till the likes, cloud reality,

Hovering over FB and Insta, while others are truly loved.

One day, one step, I said,

Am not ready to social bubble myself yet..

Last came happiness.

Oh, I can make you content

With as much success, money, fame and love you seek.

Taking with you, your loved ones along,

Today, this step, I said,

Yes, am truly ready for happiness, you bet!
