The path stretches endless

the mounting despair bottomless

the gloom seemed seamless

the pain endured limitless

Clawing my way upTriumph

the bottomless pit

the elements conspired against me

The wrath of the wind

battered my spirit

But I plodded on….

The boiling Earth 

blistered my soul

But I plodded on…..

The raging water 

tried to drown my will

But I plodded on…..

From the deep recess of my soul

Unearthed my battered will

to claw myself up

through the mesmerising depth

only to find

there are mountains more to scale…..
