Room At The Top - Poem by Gladys Brown Prince

The top is always a wanted spot
So many sought it but would not
Do what it takes to hit the spot
Or follow the few who cast in their lot

To rise to the top takes not just words
Nor was it meant to be for nerds
It takes the few with a desire to strive
That at the end they will arrive

The top to arrive you will realize
Hurdles there you must not despise
They are there for you to prepare
And face what top life people share

For at the top you’re sure to meet
The favored and the elite to greet
The higher up the ladder you climb
The closer you’ll be to the Divine

Up at the top you can’t take a nap
For tumbling down you’ll come with a flap
Those who are there often without good cheer
Are unable to help even if to ask you dare

So room at the top you see is for those
Who love the Jesus that others despise
Come try to be wise do not compromise
Room at the top is for those who are wise
