Simple Life.


In life we often find it hard

But there is a way forward,

There is a simple life

If you just focus,

Focus on one step,

The step in front of you.

It can be easier

Than looking,

Looking at the whole staircase.

Life can be easier

If we concentrate,

Concentrate on one step,

One step at a time.

      Thanks Orchi.

        It's true. I suppose it's no use - and we can't - just jump up to the top step of the stairs. But maybe we do it metaphorically - quite a long word there for this time of the morning! lol.
        Though there's the saying 'I'll go to the foot of our stairs'.
        I sound like the Grand Old Duke of York, going up and down stairs, and he didn't know whether he was coming or going. Doh!
