poem- mountain climbing August 29, 2013

I thought I was at the base of the mountain, ready to start climbing,

but I realise that I am actually

at Mountain Equipment Co-op

looking for supplies.

I have to be on the mountain

ready or not

and I need ropes,

and crampons,

and carabiners.

I need to know how to climb.

I want to climb

I want to see the view from the heights

know I’ve conquered my fears

risen above

fought a good fight.

So I am heading to

the base camp, looking up,

and starting the climb,

armed with attitude

perseverance,

hope,

faith,

and desire.

I will climb this mountain

step

by

step.

    The mountain has, not always, a terminal peak, nor we the best of equipment to essay its terrible face; and still we climb, step by step we climb!
