The Footprints Of Success

There was a time my heart said,
You had money everything you brought
All you wanted was love and Money could buy it you though
But there was no market where love was put for sale
You searched it every where but you did fail
The crown of success made you proud.
Just as you wanted to be distinct in the crowd
There you were the Most distinct among all
Just like a dried sea you may merely call
You thought you have everything you need and you were not born to follow but to lead.
I pleaded you to throw away the pride for it was then your love would meet
But you crushed my words just like a flower under your feet
You were on the top of the world breathing the air of success
But within your soul cried for love and no one could guess
How far could you run from your self there came a point when you did realise and how sad you felt
You had everything but had no care and then just like an ice did you melt
Once again I rose my voice and spoke out clear but you being so depressed could hardly hear
Then came a storm and blew away your success and after that your life was in a total mess
All your fair weather companions fled away and then came true love on your way
It pulled you out from the long dark night and you recognised your love at its first sight
It held you up and again you rose your way became your destiny and this is what true love shows
Holding your love you walked in the sand and looked back to guess, all you found were the footprints of your success

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
