The Ladder Climb

People bustling,

Not stopping

To heal under cascading skys.

Hungry for more than

They need. Unsatisfied,

Impatient for dusk

When daybreak hits.

Letting surroundings,

The little things,

Fall between the cracks


Missing out, tossed about

The ladder climb—

When breaks are a must.

Living slow and trust

In the process.

Something not on

The mind.
