The first rung on the ladder


I put my right foot up the first rung of the ladder, held on to the sides and stepped on the second rung. Then I froze in that awkward mid-step stride. I couldn’t go up, couldn’t go on.

What if one of the rungs gave up? What if the last one does? And I fall, straight, 6 feet under ground.

What of it, then?

So I stepped down and pushed the ladder back.

No more.
