tall mountains all about me
one, each day i climb
some stand for undying hope
others quiet desperation
each a promise, that
from my soul, i shall not hide
with each step, growing stronger
up tall mountains that i climb
circling some, worn trails upward
others, new paths yet to find
no fixed goal or final destination
steadfastly walking, in silent meditation
for there, with my soul i abide

Trinitystar: Thanks. The mountains help us, as do the rivers of love and change flowing through us, and as do the winds of time that blow through us.
I like this one Don, yes, the mountains we climb. Many heh!
If only we could apply the simplicity to life are mountains would be much easier to climb. Effortless. In clarity we are able to see the crevices where we can lift our selves up.
