Once upon a staircase, a giant step I made
Looking up to struggles, down a waterfall cascade. Another step is taken, a giant leap I take All the different stages, with every step I make. Once upon a staircase, another step I took Growing through the pages, of a written journal book. Inked in footprints, left behind by stain If I keep going, only a few steps remain. Once upon a staircase, I looked up the last time A cascade of courage, in taking the last climb. I took the final steps, a fear I had to face I finally got there, once upon a staircase.
