Climb the Mountain Called Life CategoriesMemories & Musings

Climb the Mountain Called Life

A scorching flame
upon your back
attacks your willpower,
Determination turns sour.
You must hold on tight
to win this fight.
Climb the mountain
Called life,
Step over the controversy
over the strife.
Never look back
Show no slack.
Proceed with caution
Beware of your step,
Beware of height
Beware of depth.
Troubles closing in on every side,
There is nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide.
Fear is your enemy
Faith is your friend
Climb the mountain
Never give in.
