Challenge.

Challenge.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

 

 

Challenge.

 

The mind has its mountains,
cliffs of fall,
 cautiously self-made traits 
not easily climbed save by hearts
who fight fear and allow endurance
to augur change.

 

Life has its forbidding plains,
lion-limbed
heights of challenge that gained
by experience defines a belief 
in those who bide with assurance
of heaven's aid.

 

Time has grinding anvils,
ego's test
loaded with iron will,
me-istically patterned to battle
all souls but who wins faces blows
with no wincing.
