Staircase spiralling up to the heaven or descending down to hell?
Taking you to the top or to the bottom of the well?
Reaching up for your dreams or treading on someone’s dwell?
Lifting the spirits or making them scream and yell?
Helping someone climb or pulling down, only you can tell!
Laughing while climbing or crying when you fell!
Looking up in sweet anticipation or looking down with fear of unwell?
Initiating action or waiting lazily for the gong of the bell?
Climbing up or climbing down, hold tightly the hand of integrity, don’t let your soul sell.
Protect it with trust and love, conceal it in tenderness and faith’s shell.
And if you choose to reach the top, be like a beacon to the ships in the ocean swell.
Guiding them to safety of home, bidding troubles farewell.
