A Better Ladder

Hardwood Ladder

Legs ready to support your intention

Each step brings you closer to your goal

By bringing you further from comfort

The higher, the closer you get

Your balance becomes tenuous

You find yourself stuck somewhere you decided to go

Legs wobble on wobbling legs

As you question each decision and footfall

Closer to falling than you are to flying

You stop looking where you’re going

So you don’t fall from where you are

Your fear of heights invites you back down the ladder

But you’re so close to your destination

Anything but the top is tantamount to failure

Even as legs creak and the final rung breaks

Your fall back to complacency brings you back to the heart of the matter

If you want better results, build a better ladder
