I live my life on the top floor,
Yet still aiming to get from where I am to something more,
An upgrade if you will,
Just by climbing the hill,
For glory to my possessor!

I usually take baby steps after a big stride,
Part of a long chain I often abide,
I often need my companions support,
Yet alone I can become to close for comfort,
With a little shove!

What am I?
