Uphill

The mountain before me is incredibly steep

I have to work hard and dig deep.

My climb is slow, my breathing heavy

Stopping myself a couple of times to keep myself steady.

One step at a time, one foot in front of the other

I’ll get to the top, one way or another.

So I go on, upwards and onwards!

Brick Wall

I hit a dead end,

It seems

I stood there for a moment

Surveyed my surroundings

The brick wall stood massively in front of me

Many would have turned back

Others would have climbed it

Some may have tried to take it down

Others may have built a door

But I

I simply walked around it

Running Out

All the miles I ran

I thought at first I couldn’t 

Buy ended up saying, “I can”.
I looked at the behemoth before me

Fear crept inside, swelling 

But I ended up trying, you see.
I ran up the mountain, stumbled, fell then got up

Bruises on my elbows and knees 

But I didn’t stop.
It felt time was running out or maybe it was rushing in

I took a step forward 

And all over again I started to begin.
