I climb high

by E. C. Fisher


I begin with the huddled masses
The mountain ahead stirs us; a journey to the peak
Grasping for the hanging fruit; trying to enjoy its sweet nectar
Obstacles stand before me; barriers on my journey
Daunting tasks as I make my trek up
I climb high; reaching out for the stars

I glance back to see those who started faltered
Do I despair; give up; and join the ranks of the dearly departed
The ascent perilous; I find myself with doubt
The unknown journey ahead leaves me swaying
The sun shines through the clouds; a light in the darkness
I climb high; reaching out for the stars

I find myself at the top; alone I’ve made it
The view on high is beautiful; I wish I could share it
I climbed high; reaching out for the stars
