Difficult climb to the top of the mountain,
First step, next grip, keeps the momentum;
Search for the peak, the head of a titan,
One trial, one path, and my determination.
Struggles met on the narrow, steep ridge,
Temptations and trials, all seem authentic;
Stay to the trail, don’t fall off a cliff,
A lion waits at the bottom, hungry and quick!
At last at the top, or so it would seem,
On a ledge I did look at the distant scene…
A giant among dwarfs loomed beyond me,
Flaunting, harassing, and curiosity provoking.
“Someday,” I say, with utmost certainty,
“I will reach that peak at the end of my journey.”
