Higher

Holding onto the wrungs
this never-ending
climb
breaks my spirit
be better, do more, get
higher
but who can resist
looking back
down to easier slats
or even below
to solid ground
wear I could run
free
to climb a new ladder
or a mountain
or lie down on the warm
solid earth
instead
the view sometimes makes me
slip
but when I just
look up
into the heavens I
climb without thought
dizzy with the pressure
and heavy with the weight
of what I carry
if I faulter
it is not just me
who will fall
I still long to see
what awaits
at the top
perhaps
there is balance
in the clouds
but maybe
there is just me
staring down at
the life
I forgot to
love
in my haste
to simply
be done
