Human desires insatiable
Like a staircase to the sky,
Ever craving heart beats
Its rate rising fast and high.
Each step you take
The next afore you to climb,
Calves aching, soles bleeding…
You labour until you die.
Each morn wishing for something new
You grieve, you mourn, you sigh,
Never looking at all you’ve got
The gifts from the Eternal High.
So wait, don’t rush
Just stop and take your time.
The world wouldn’t seem to be running
If only you take life in its stride.
