Stairway

Stairway

A Chapter by Alex Vidmar
"

Inspired by Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven"

"
Each time it takes over,
I find myself one step higher.
Climbing that stairway,
That Stairway into Heaven.

No matter how much
I try to fight,
I'm pulled up higher,
Destined for endless flight.

Upon the whispering wind,
Are carried truth and sin.
These two words have a very fine line between
Because you know, words have two meanings.

Each time it takes over,
I find myself one step higher.
Climbing that stairway,
That Stairway into Heaven.

Each time it takes over,
I climb one step higher.
Climbing that stairway,
Up to Heaven.

Inspirational poetry from a beautiful song, I loved the flow, and the pleasant, uplifting feelings. I particularly enjoyed the last two stanzas, because they were unique, the way you made them sound similar, and yet so different. Flawless write, enjoyed reading.

I've never looked at it that way.. :)
A great poem inspired by a great song. The last stanza is beautiful and closes the poem quite nicely. Well done!

Strong. I wonder what happens each time to cause you to climb higher though. I like the rhythm, the imagery, and the scriptural elements you reference. Great poem. Just, what is causing you to climb higher?

Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" has made many of us think and wish to find heaven somewhere. I like the flow of thoughts and hope in the poem. Thank you for the excellent poem.

A very nice write to go along with a great song. I know the title but yet you made it uniquely yours.
