A Poem by Veronica Staehle

The climb.


Everyday it’s just more. 
Interior becomes calmer-
Mindset sharp, attentive: 
yet flexible. Accommodate
you, entertain that one,
flash a smile, laugh a while-
Straighten my shoulders
and face. Serious about
my space and pace- begin
when it’s time and go until
I’m done. But i’m never done.
If it’s not this, then it’s that.

Gotta say yes, because 
challenges lift you up onto
your next level, closer to 
the place you want to be. 
Dare and push. Be taunted-
never waver. From the insides
your heart beats and pours
drenching everything you 
touch juicily. Its euphoric
the places you can get to;
intellectually and physically.
combined forces are explosive.

Nice, the poem flows very well. You combine the mundane with the struggle (challenges) beautifully and leave us feeling like it is all good. Actually better than good. Cheers!
