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

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,
