Climb That Mountain

I have given to all
Yet I have never given to myself
I have guided so many
Yet not myself
I have fallen
Yet I know I can rise
Because of this wonderful world....
The heavenly skies
I have seen the smiles I bring
To so many, when my heart sings
I have seen the joy I get from the simple things around
This fulfils me so much... My every wound
I know I have found it is time to cherish who I am... for why
To raise the lows and make them high
I am so blessed for who I have been
Stemmed from the pain of what I have seen
The aches the pains are open to us all
There are those waiting, waiting to fall
Yet we must rise... For only ourselves
To see achievement of heartfelt wealth
So Climb That Mountain. Even if you don't make the height
You will be proud you never.... Gave up the fight

    Sometimes all it takes are a few words of encouragement to inspire us and get us back on track. And your poem certainly does that. Wonderful poem! (Report) Reply

    Your poetry is superb and the style matchless. The words and the language ensure spontaneity of expression and clarity of meaning. I would like to quote the following lines: I am so blessed for who I have been / Stemmed from the pain of what I have seen. Congrats for being No.1 still again. Thanks. (Report) Reply
