Stairway to Heaven

 

A rope ladder meets us

for the climb up to safety.

Hand over hand we go,

jump the last few feet.

 

From below, a smugglers home:

‘Danger Cliffs’  the sign says,

‘Loose rocks’, ‘Beware.’

from above:‘ Haven for lost souls’.

 

‘All welcome as equals’, say the words.

not the hostile environment we found.

On the waves we’d tossed sick and cold,

frightened what the future would hold.

 

Now an alien in a foreign place,

I call to my grandmother’s face:

‘Save me’, ‘Aiuta’, ‘Help’ and

‘I will believe’, so long as I can land.
