Top of the Mountain


You came upon a mountain that seemed so hard to climb
To undertake a task so great will really take some time
As you held your head up high peering up to the top
Your heart began to race and your courage started to drop

I need some time to think you said and then you began to ponder
That mountain that I started to climb is very high up yonder
Get to the top of the mountain by taking one step at a time
No need be in a hurry since you did not commit a crime

Take a deep breath with all your might and start to move ahead
Success in life is up to you no matter what others have said
Continue to climb that mountain until the top looms near
It takes a strong will for survival and also many a tear

Every inch was a struggle many heartaches along the way
The time it took to reach the top did not happen all in a day
You finally achieved the goal in life that you always wanted to do
Others might help you along the way but the rest is up to you

    Life does at times equate to a mountain climb, some slopes are easy, some very difficult. Good write, very philosophical. (Report) Reply

    Unfortunately life has one mountain after another.So we are never going to get anywhere unless knuckle down, get gritty, and move ass on out. (Report) Reply

    A great assessment on how to climb life's mountain, just one step at a time. I'm
    nearly there and worrying about the descent.A smooth flowing, thoughtful write.
    Keep on writing (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
