The higher you go the harder you fall – they all say.
Wonder Woman afraid to fly.
The invisible plane is a harness,
not a means to escape that glass ceiling.
One step in front of the other.
Light green leaves on dark brown branches
tickle my face.
Do not be tempted to rely on them for support.
Focus on feet.
Not accepting praise.
Or asking for recognition.
“It’s the team”, she says
She decides she’s gone high enough
And steps down.
