"But there's a hope waiting for you in the dark, you should know you're beautiful just the way you are. And you don't have to change a thing the world could change its heart. No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful." - Alessia

Everybody is climbing the staircase of life,

but they are climbing it at different rates.

Some climb it fast, some slow.

For some it is really easy to travel,

but for others it's a steeper hill.


Sometimes the steps become harder than others,

or they could be too risky.

Some people travel it alone.

Sometimes you take a step and 

not move for a while.


Sometimes you lose your balance

and you fall down the stairs to where you started.

You look up and see where you once were and think,

"How can I ever get back to where I was!" 

So you sit down on a step while everyone around you 

is moving upwards on the staircase of life.


Eventually you decide to start moving again.

You walk up a few steps and there is someone 

standing in front of you blocking your path.

They look down at you, and the previous 

steps you've taken in life.


They scoff at you and say "You don't belong here,

you'll never make it in life, go back

to where you came from.

You stop at that step, doubting yourself 

and your capabilities.


Then someone comes along who is also

traveling the staicase of life. 

They tell you that you are worth everything, 

then they take your hand and carry you

through the staircase of life.


You eventually get passed to where

you origianlly started.

No matter how hard it gets 

you just gotta keep climbing, keep moving

forward on the staircase of life.
