On the good days

I can skip a step

Two at a time

A sprint upward

But energy flags

And the mind loses focus

Still I climb

One step at a time

A hand on the railing

The other on the wall

I continue upward

The journey

Was never meant

To be a long, smooth road

But a test of strength



And faith

That the climb

Is worth it ~ Caroline A. Slee
