Ladder Of Life - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Fix your eyes on the ladder
Ladder that takes to the top
Climb it step by step
Don't be distracted by cobwebs
The ladder may be bumpy
That should not bother you
He who must lick honey inside rock
Must not mind the fate of the axe
So climb the ladder with integrity,
Courage, love, piety and integrity
Never forget those you left behind
And the one that help you to climb
Remember a river severed from its source
Will dry up along its course
Let God be your guide
As you mount the ladder of life

    As a fellow therapist I can appreciate the value of the last few lines. Especially in understanding how people can and tend to burn their bridges down without considering the importance of community. (Report) Reply

    It seems more of that
    where there you are
    is less over here due to greed...iip (Report) Reply
