10 steps


10 steps to greatness
10 steps to pain
10 steps to glory
10 steps to fame
10 steps to lonliness
10 steps to hurt
10 steps to happiness
Or a face full of dirt
Nothing makes sense
Nothing seems right
Is it all worth a chance?
Is it all worth a fight?
10 steps to love
10 steps to war
10 steps to freedom
10 steps to the door.

    It makes all the sense. Some things don't have enough sense to make sense. Which is why it makes sense. Life is chancing of all undeserving and so risk is always. We make what we can and move on. We are not supposed to understand everything in life. There are two things I could never want: I could never want to live forever and know everything! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Bien! (Report) Reply

    The concept is truly imaginative and you have handled it well. Read mine – Indebted –

    A nice write. I like the step idea. And the eleventh step probably takes you back to the starting point? (Report) Reply
