Peering Through the Glass Layers


Small bug climbing

the ladder of success

searching for crumbs

doing his best


Working hard

peering in the window

many types of food

are on the menu


He buzzes around

from flap to flap

grabbing what he can

hoping not to be zapped


An opening appears

in his large wall

climbing through the cracks

he still feels small


A community arises

he is not alone

now making a difference

it feels like home


Leaving the ladder

layered with success

sharing what he has

with those who have less
