One Small Step

Atul Chandra Sarkar

It's a small step
That does it all,
Determines our rise,
Or our fall!
One small step
Opens a new door,
One small step
Throws to the floor.
One small step
Can make a friend,
One small step
Can bring an end.
Let's be careful
About the step we take,
Let's be patient
For heaven's sake.
Small, small steps
One at a time,
Make up seven rounds
Of nuptials life-time.
Onwards to Love
Or to Hate,
One small step
Decides our Fate.
