I Say You Are Great

Poem By Gajanan Mishra

My dear, every journey
Begins with one single step,
then another, they alternate
with each other, and the body
follows close behind.

Setting out on my journey in
joyous life, I came to a fork
in the gravel road.

Looking down one
then the other, choosing the
one with less footprints-
Unconsciously- keeping the
other for another point in time.
…, ..., ...

My darling! we met you along
the way and our blood poured together.
I gave you the one I'd saved for another time.

“Now is the beginning of your own voyage.
Pay close attention on your journey…but enjoy!
And remember...ones choice is the difference.
