Life is like a Stair Case

Life is like a stair case . .
Full of steps to take .
Full of moves you must make .
To get where you want to go
By taking just one step at a time . .
To get there , is like trying to climb . .
A mountain so high just to get up there to say . .
I made it . . I finished . . No matter what obstacles were in my way .
I did it . . I completed my task . . I've done what I had to do
To take one step at a time . . and make it through .
I've walked up that stair case , I've made it to my dream .
Life maybe tough at times and its never what it seems .
But if you keep your head held high , and put a smile on your face .
You'll make it to the very top because . . . Life is like a stair case

this poem has a great meaning and it is really wonderful. i think that you should try poems that don't rhyme, you are such a good writer and you have a great flow, you would do wonderful with writing free verse (:

Your poem reminds me of Langston Hughes' poem "Mother to Son" The famous lines of..."Life for me ain't no crystal stair..."

This is great. Keep writing hun!
