(You must
rise above it all...)
I resolve to climb
life’s rugged mountain
—rugged as my spirit—
this bastion of the desert
amidst a wilderness of hope.
I set my eyes on Daunting Peak:
future’s herald awaiting my ascent.
Her soaring whispers encouraging my travels
into moonlit dreams and unknown shadows.
