Ladder Of Life


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

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
