Rooftops

Some people use rooftops for stargazing. They lay on the roof, look up and dream of wonderful things. Some people climb up to the rooftop to look out beyond the locality. And another portion of people cannot bear to reach the rooftop. They begin to climb but the higher up they go the more likely the ladder is to shake.

In the end, there are three types of people. Those who let the fear of a shaking ladder overtake them, the ones that aim only for what they can see, and those who are not even held captive by a dream.

Benjamin Franklin once said "Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."

I'd like to do both.
