Life is a staircase.
Its ploys knock us down,
And its handshakes pull us up.
It is a ladder of deceptive popularity:
It is mpossible to reach the top.
Putting one foot in front of the other
Is the only way to get through.
Some days we barely move,
On others we take leaps.
Yes, life is a staircase
And all we have to do is climb.
