We set out from home with comrades in tow.
The sunlight shone on every trampled stone.
Our hearts were free from the monotony,
Of daily life’s grief, work, and disease.
Every challenge seen, we accepted with glee.
Like trails of bunnies, our paths careened.
In the wide, open range we rested from fame.
No gold or silver claim, not even a name.
This edge of disaster, we came to master;
We kept going faster as we burst with laughter.
Our path took us over many a river and boulder;
A single, daily adventure, in the moment, lasts forever.
Looking back, where we were just moments ago;
The awe and wonder of God’s creation below.
Onward and upward, and further and inward,
Higher and colder, as we travel to Asgard.
Every step, every ledge, we struggle against.
Some laugh, some help, as we hang off the edge.
Overcoming the obstacles, we rest on the mountain;
No matter the improbable, we drink from Dragon Fountain.
Over the troll bridges, we head back to home.
Avoiding the disadvantages of becoming meat and bone.
To home we returned, for there’s no better place;
A place, I’ve learned, where love and peace stay.
