Life is an elevator. It can go up or down, and sometimes sideways!
Every once in a while, you’ll get stuck and have to have faith someone will come to save you.
Periodically, the door will get stuck. It happens.
Life may be out of order in emergencies, in which case, you’ll just have to find a way (or take the stairs).
There may be a delay on the way to your destination, or you could get there right away. It will depend on the day. Once you make it to the top, the doors will slide open (or maybe creak) and reveal the outside world to you again.
