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!

Summer Is Here Or Near

In this square room I suddenly hear

Waves crashing that seems too far away

Light years they are! Light years!
I see the beach, I feel the sand beneath my feet

My mind wanders

While my body remains in this seat.
The mountains call, their cold springs wait

While I am nowhere near them

Alas! This awful fate!
I’d like to leave now

Leave and be free

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.

Kissed By The Sun

Oh it’s summer once again

The excitement awaits

Not everyone goes to the beach

Like me, I choose to climb

Rule the mountain!

Trek the adventure

Choose the path less traveled

 

Under the heat of the majestic sun

Be kissed by its beauty

Marvel at the world

Reach for it with your fingertips

When The World Ended

The day the world ended, the sun wept a cold tear

The moon was never whole again

The stars lost their shine

Darkness enveloped the Earth

The willow mourned and wept

 All the colors  have been drained

Never to be found again

The trees bent backwards, cowered in fear

The mountains crumbled into dust

 

The day the world ended, my heart was in pieces

For I have lost you
