One Good Thing, Once a Day

by Venkat

A world of sticky morass

Multiple shaded choices

Never ending demands

Inordinate dark feelings

An urge for white peace

Multi-tasking under stress

Unable to take the first step

Too much woolly information

A will to push hard

Erase old habits

Write a new chapter

Find a dream theme

A chronic conundrum

In everyone’s world

Going back to roots

The origin of wisdom

Old habits die hard

Chained by my cravings

As banal roads I go each day

Unable to make my way

Now I’m a different man

Reading between the lines

Crossed over the bridge

Seen myself in a new land

I have sown the seeds

And now under those trees

Looking back at my change

I’ve found my soul in life

Life’s pleasant song

Is sung in one certain way

Doing one good thing

Just once a day
