The Apex

"

Climbing, struggling I keep trudging on...

The journey before me seems ever so long

Trudging, panting I continue to tread...

My thought ringing so loud in my crowded head.....

 

 

The Mountain looms so large before me....

It's Apex...I still quite can't see....

Still....patiently I trudge on.....

Singing my "mantra' my personal song

 

 

One step, two steps here I go.....

Soon my steps start to flow...

The climb is hard...that I give you

Difficult, laborious and tedious too

 

 

But without the struggle..would I trully know.......

The sense of freedom, successes finest glow

I rest upon the Apex...the peak

Too astounded yet to speak....

 

 

Stretched out before me I can see.......

The descent...life's 'easy'.....

I appreciate the ease of Mountains' descent & decline

For within the struggle..the inherent climb I simply 'FIND'

 

the truth...the meaning...my purpose & healing

I applaud this poem & you my friend! Thank God your little daughter has a wonderful parent like you. "One step, two steps"- yes! And you "find"yourself and your purpose in the struggle. Eloquent and heart-felt words and metaphor, lovely form, cadence and rhyme. You've reached the "Apex" here with this poem! Kudos & blessings!
