Steps

by Sneha Subramanian Kanta
(Mumbai, India)

Steps leading away, on and off

Steps leading away, on and off

Steps these are.
Yes,
That’s what they are.
I know you are with me
Steps, these and more
Follow my footsteps
And see me where I am
Guard me behind like
A shadow
And never let me die

Shield me with your armor
And protect me through storm and heat
Turbulent may be the weather
And the storm clouds may have gathered
Yet stand beside me,
Clutched as it can be
And I’ll be fine for the moment

Look at these sea rocks
And the crabs which crawl inside
Be like plain rainwater
Quench my quest for life

Steps, yes these are
All leading through
To one eternal hell...!

Sneha, I thought the steps would take the reader deep within where there is flow of eternal tranquility and calm of deathless beauty.
