Spiral Staircase by Courtney Dodge

Spiral Staircase.
Enticing its guests to take a leisurely stroll to their destination
rather than shoot straight up to the end goal.
But why?
Why take the loops?
Why walk the extra steps
only to feel like you’re retreating?
But then again its in our DNA.
It it our DNA.
The spiral helix engrained in us
forcing us to take the journey.
And at the end of the day,
when the strain of the final step reaches the top,
that spiral is much more rewarding to look back down.
To see each step and turn that once created a sigh,
now creates a sigh of relief,
knowing that it added to the height of the final step.
Spiral staircases provide the reminder we need to enjoy the journey of life.
