Do we grab the banister?

it's dark as midnight out there,
no lanterns to lead the way.
the clouds feel rough–
no pillows float the breeze today.

we're stuck at a standstill,
halfway to heaven, the stairs keep on rising.
up, up and away–
no time to hesitate, decisions keep expiring.

do we grab the banister?
it seems to be constructed out of lightning.
or do we slide down–
a balancing act ever so frightening.

the troposphere appears to spiral to infinite,
daunting, if not taunting, to say the least.
yet our altitude's increasing–
we must be overcoming that wind of a beast.

      Wonderful editing; I'm with Katy -- no grabbing banisters for me, except in the winter when I have gloves on!

      I do not need an answer. Somethings are better left unknown.
      Great shot.

      Ah, the ups and downs of life and the stairs have seen the different 'walks' of life! I enjoyed the Seseme Street video! hehe.

      Gravir les échelons des jours et des nuit en s'aidant de la rampe, aux derniers degrés de cet escalier qu'est la vie... Et pourtant,on ne la veut pas cette rampe qui nous aide à arriver à la fin inexorable de l'escalier. Le parvis final nous atomiseras pour l'éternité
