Walking Love

I used to think that
people ascended like steps
upward toward more
money, respect, recognition
fancy titles designating
arrival, confirmed success
ambition achieved
now I realize the fiction
of stories told, hours spent
comparing you and me
when serving others
through love and compassion
is really all there is
