The Climb

By Damien Knight


I stood eager at the foot of the mountain

looking up gear on my back

fear in my heart, rope in hand, I climb

hope the summit would be surmounted

I fight every rock along the path

every boulder smashed, every cliff I scale

I will climb this just as I do every story I tell

I won’t be held back by worry

At the top a man can look below at earth

He can see his dreams, the accomplishments

Every obstacle now so small

This trial shows a man his ultimate worth
