A Stone Staircase

If the world isn’t flat,

maybe it has steps

and if everyone is making their way

up and down the steps

then one person’s triumphant step up

is another’s stumble down.

so when a person trips,

and slides to their rock bottom,

it may be higher or lower

than another’s rock bottom.

one person’s suffering does not soften your own,

just as yours does not cease someone else’s.
