There Is Up...There Is Down - Poem by Frances Jackson Johnson

you between
which elevator button will you push
where are going...I mean
I ask the question...
yet yours is the trip
will you fully drink in knowledge
or simply take a sip
will you plunge into the water
or merely take a dip
are your plans for a successful future
are you still in the past
yours is the question to answer
...I...simply ask
