Aladdin's Ladder - Poem by ArmourQuill Hunter

Jacob dreamt and a ladder came on earth, opening such a door
We can’t climb without a ladder; try a goal, reasonable, to soar
You cannot ascend to success dressed in the costume of failure
Christ’s robe of Righteousness graciously covers to adore

It’s not the climb, it’s the positioning of the ladder that matters
Though it’s best to travel light, in case there could be a splatter
It is never crowded at the top but, perhaps, lonely for sure
Those who’ve made it for quality in life avoid distraction’s lure

So many crosses of plumblines, step on the rungs of opportunity
Failed regrets can prepare a plateau to win another possibility
Many climb a proverbial plumbline, or ladder’s rung, all wrong
Courage is a ladder on which all other virtues mount with song

The wise prudently lower to climb, respectfully against a fall
Many reach the top to find the ladder’s against the wrong wall
Reaching too far, one can get stabbed before ascension’s climb
Considering, indomitably, I shall not wane in faith or resign
