Life Is An Impossibly Big Mountain

Hello Everyone,

I’m here posting today as a mark of the fact that I am not permanently gone. I have not given up on this blog!

I recently edited one of my old poems because I felt it could be greatly improved, and it was something I experimented with giving a new meaning. By that I mean that I wanted to take a new twist with the words I had already written out. Hope you enjoy!

Life is like an impossibly big mountain

Intimidating in stature, blocking my path

Path to what? I don’t really know

I thought I had it all figured out


I’ve tried to climb it

Like everyone does, like everyone can

But I fall every time, every time I try

I don’t even feel like I have a choice, like I get a say

So I try again,

Only to fall once more


Sometimes, it feels like I’m finally getting somewhere

Somewhere far way

Somewhere better than this place

Better than anything I’ve got right now

And then I’ll look down and freeze with fear

Seconds later I’m tumbling through the air


I know 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. Yes, I’ve missed your writing! I like this poem, it feels like it comes from a part of you that you are holding and giving expression to. His world feels less dire when he feels you holding his reality.

  2. You captured the dilemma of our life very well, MR! We love life and then we feel crushed and then we love life and then it’s so hard… Maybe if we lived 800 or 900 years we would finally be able to mature enough… Thanks for posting! ☼ tomas

  3. “Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up.” ~ Chinese proverb. 😉 As long as you keep climbing that mountain, there is hope that you will reach the summit.
