Boundless

A ladder appears in my dreams
Circular in fashion
And never-ending, it seems

My ascent begins
When, like water over rocks in a stream
My grip starts slipping

Pitch blackness surrounds me
In an instant, I'm falling
Right side up? Upside down?
I can't see a thing

Approaching zero gravity
I gasp for air
Reaching out for the next rung
But it's not there

Panic sets in
Surely, I know
I'll never find security again

No control
Merely a lost soul

I close my eyes
With arms outstretched
When, my fingers finally find rest

With newfound strength
My next climb begins
This time, I've got faith I'll find my place again
