Falling From Heaven - Poem by Kurt Kacich

From the top of heavens I tripped down the flight of stairs,
I continue to fall until I reach the devil’s lair,

I remember as I climbed, the clouds opened for me as I walked to the top,
But somewhere on the top of the stairs I tripped until I dropped,
Nowhere along the way did I want to stop,
Until I fell while trying to reach the top,

My mind went blank as I tumbled down the steps,
Until I reached rock bottom into the darkest of depts.,

Then suddenly I realized, I climbed to fast,
I wanted to reach paradise in the heavens that I saw so vast,
But suddenly the wind pushed me down as I took my last gasp,
The climb to the Heavens contained more complexity than my mind was able to grasp,

Again I struggle to reach the sky,
Again up the mountainous stairs to the top I climb,
For before I was only able to see the heavens behind the human eye,
I know now that I’m only human, and life is too precious to pass it by
And the strength of human life is too strong to fall from suicide.
