This Addiction

Climbing these stairs is a challenge.
At first the going was easy.
However, soon my legs got tired,
And each step became a hurdle.

The steps became larger and larger,
And I wished I could rest easy.
Can’t I stop here and rest a bit?
But I can’t stall along the way.

I attempt to climb just one more step.
Impossible, this task seems.
For this step is now the largest.
Each try to climb ends in defeat.

I begin to feel discouraged.
I want to quit and go back down.
I must keep trying, however.
The next step surely is smaller.

I finally get the courage
And the motivation to climb.
I lift myself up on this step,
And look to see what’s left behind.
