Steps of Destination

How to step back, we were within some steps of destination
Our oversight was in advert ant, deserving utmost consideration

My eyes have lowered looks, my lips are all sealed
More than this, I cannot vouch my own admiration

We could not keep pace with our commitment
We cannot blame the world for their indignation

It may be temple or tavern, candles are incandescent
Our heart is all despondent, we show our desperation

A tear in eye was symbolic of a star in the sky
To discover any galaxy would end in frustration

It is same confused longing, it is same diffused yearning
No high or low day after day, no differentiation
