Life is Like an Impossibly Big Mountain

Life is like an impossibly big mountain,

Intimidating is stature, creating one’s path,

Slanting up, slanting down,

A gigantic rock with a wrath:

 

reach…     misstep

struggle           wobble

strain                       fall

pull                               tumble

fight                                     crash

climb                                           collapse

 

Only to climb again,

Only to fall once more,

The cycle never breaking,

Feeding from the failure,

Of every hour of your waking,

 

It seems I won’t ever reach the peak,

Looking down and fearing the drop,

Never finding what I seek,

I have no time to stop,

 

My struggle is futile,

But it’s strange,

Because I can’t help but hope,

That something will change,

 

And so I climb this mountain,

Starting from the floor,

Only to climb again,

Only to fall once more,

  1. The feeling shines through… your words flow with emotion… is very good.

    Something **will** change, one day you’ll fly…

  2. I remember feeling like this before. The feeling of helplessness. Even when you’ve vowed to never give up. The feeling that no matter what you do, you can’t move forward. It’s only a season though; life may seem like it just keeps going up, but you just have to find those little things that make it worth it in the end. Great post 🙂
