Your Mountain Climb

November 21, 2011

“You Cannot Lower Your Mountain” (read here) and you can’t climb it by looking at it. You can elevate yourself only if you climb. Your mountain is there waiting for you. It is your opportunity to discover yourself and fulfill your potential.  To lead a life filled with purpose.

The Climb

A small boy heard the mountain speak,

“There are secrets on my highest peak;

but beware, my boy, the passing of time.

Wait not too long to start the climb.”

 So quickly come and go the years,

and a young man stands below- with fears.

“Come on-come on,” the mountain cussed

“Time presses on-on, climb you must.”

 Now he’s busied in middle-aged prime,

and maybe tomorrow he’ll take the climb.

now is too soon – it’s raining today

Gone all gone – years are eaten away.

 An old man looks up – still feeling the lure.

Yet, he’ll suffer the pain – not climb for the cure.

The hair is white – the step is slow.

And it’s safer and warmer to stay here below.

 So all too soon the secrets are buried,

along with him and regrets he carried.

And it’s not for loss of secrets he’d cried,

But rather because he’d never tried.
