Your first steps
taken with like liquor-streaks,
Your race from one end to another,
Done with a target one after the other,
Experimenting the steps taken by elders,
You rise and fall daringly,
You do not give up actually,
Lessons of life.
like it must not close,
Racing to and from,
Creating happy parental feel,
Run with care,
Avoid dangerous falls,
Life is a journey filled with steps.
