On the ladder
one rung leads to the next.
Don't kick the lower rung
or destroy it
just because it's not
You need all the rungs
if you're ever
going to get where
you're going --
isn't that what a ladder is for?
Two-way travel
first up
then down?
Honor all the rungs
even the rickety ones.
They're all needed
for your climb
up or down
either way</p>
