Compliments, success and various honors I earned
Are like matchsticks leading me the next stage on
By lighting my path to settle down in corporate life.
But do I stand to all the above compliments & honor?
Or Do they say the truth earnestly or for some "return"
As they lay more responsibilities and duties yet
Do they set a situation to confine oneself in show-case?
Here’s the crux; ignored the truth after combustions.
Have learnt a lesson, if flame goes off, light a new.
There’re safety matches, friction and noiseless one
Needing suitable surface or specially prepared surface.
Well, an unstruck match won’t show up in pitch dark
Unless lighted up with external source with a surface.
