Two Steps Forward

 

I’m taking two steps forward,

ten steps back;

progress is a thing

I lack.

Moving backwards

all the time,

sliding when

I make a climb.

Where I’m going,

hard to see,

this ground will be

the death of me.

Climb the ladder,

up one rung,

then five downwards;

it’s begun.

Futile efforts,

not much scope

to make changes

with no hope.

Better stay, accept defeat,

pretend that things are fine;

for pushing up is leading to

a rapid deep decline.
