Escalator

Escalator take me to
a higher plane of living;
a place of focus less on take
and more on selfless giving.

For happiness is not tied up
in getting what you can,
but rather what you find to do that
helps your fellow man.

We can be slow to learn this as it
goes against the grain, where
"happy" equals max the pleasure,
minimise the pain.

But Solomon, who's been this route, says
once the bright lights dim,
serving self is vanity and
striving after wind.
