A series of steps
A big challenge for me
One, two, three, four steps
Beyond, ascending I dare, try and see.
A flight of steps
A long journey by foot
Weakness; calmness, no beeps
I fly up, ignoring the dust and soot.
A set of individual steps
A pace on treads and landings
Shows rites of passage and preps
Milestones, new roles, success zipped by wings.
A structure to climb up or down
A twist in life, a test everyone saith
Might slip or fall, careful, don’t frown
Trust, going down can be a leap of faith.
A connection to the next level
A feat, an answer to the question
I found light, season’s beauty and its cycle
Truth that keyed up freedom and expression.
