Climbing a MountainHigh hopes at the foot
Step by step
Head throbbing heart beat climbing, racing
about to explode. Pain.
Pain shooting up the roots
from toe to top the muscles melt in a fire of exertion.
Step after step falling on rocky terrain
Each impulse that wills the body forward meets the mind in a match of desire.
Do I dare reach for the sky or give up
so the pain will die? And in doing so
so will I.
I must press on,
Press my foot into the soil
Imprinting the path with the proof of my presence.
Persistence in spite of the inner turmoil.
I don't want to face this
I can't breathe, see, think
Only feel. Burning.
Fire in my lungs in my limbs
as they lunge me forward on a journey of self
Discovery? To find
that this alone is my path
Though others tread the ground around me before me never with me.
Alone is this journey alone I must learn.
How much longer in this place?
Putting foot after foot mechanically before after before after each other
In a methodical march towards an end nev
