A Poem Inspired By Escher’s Waterfall

We wander
We stumble
We fall
We get back up again

Two steps forward
Three steps back

Constant movement
Yet still

The colors
The shapes
The waterwheel of life

The pressure
Pure yet terrifying

We wander
We stumble
We fall
We get back up again

Two steps forward
Three steps back

Where is the magic?
Where is the light?
Trying to find our way out
Around and around
looking for that trap door

We wander
We stumble
We fall
We get back up again

Two steps forward
Three steps back

The power of the human spirit
The courage
The strength
The determination

We wander
We stumble
We fall

Two steps forward
Three steps back

We get back up
again
