Up there on the highest rung

Nearly at the top

You stumbled and then slowly fell

So sure you’d never stop


The laughter over took the gasps

Sprung from pure relief

But the expression on your face

Cast from the purest grief


You chose then not to climb again

Though it was what you wanted

Instead you slunk off deep with shame

To live forlorn and haunted


But now, today you’ve come again

With wisdom in your eyes

Your foot upon the bottom rung

With naught to do but rise
