©️Loreta C. Bande

If life were lived in a spiral staircase

One could always look back to discern

What acts to correct or to go back for

What has been left in hurried concern.

It has nowhere to go but up or down by choice

There's balustrade to lean and wrung to sit on

You can never be lacking in poise and pause

You can take your time with passion or none.

If not the contender egoistic sort

The side is your grace to let others go ahead

The boon is you see all's composure

And decide when to help take the lead.

But life is more than a spiral staircase

It's a roller coaster with loops and twists

Subject to giddy dynamic challenges

That when you fall you may need therapists.
