Long Way Down

Striving so hard
to climb to the top,
turning a blind eye
to the hate-filled stares,
you never quite notice
it’s a long way down
to fall from the top.
Fall from their favor
and never quite get back.
The moment you reach
that shiny, prized spot
they plot your demise
so watch your step
because it’s a long way down
from which there’s no recover.

Prompt: Long Way Down
