The Fall

 

Climbing upwards

Step

By painful step.

Effort almost

Too damn much

To bear.

 

Higher now

Half way

Less strain,

Less pain;

Easier to

Carry on.

 

Momentum --

Building up some

Speed now.

Faster stepping

Straight on to

The top......

 

And over,

Too far,

Too fast;

Falling,

Tumbling,

Plunging down......

To lie in a

Crumpled,

Bruised and

Battered

Heap of bone

And blood.

 

Lay there

Stunned,

Shattered,

Defeated,

Unable to

Find ones feet.

 

Then crawling,

Creeping,

Starting that

Climb

To do it all

Again!
