Climb

Climb

 

my life is a climb, the journey
to reach the top wasn’t obviously easy
I trekked some hard trail
and arduous path
there were challenging course
and bumpy roads
at some point, I swore
by my right hand
moving forward
is unforeseen
but I made it to the top actually,
with lips sealed, I said a little prayer
of thank you to God Almighty
the view from the top
is breathtaking
you see everyone below
as little tiny creatures,
like a tiny piece of fish swimming,
or a small bird chirping
they look nice and adorable
and it dawned to me
will it make a difference if
I go back to where I started
and usher them all along with me
or help them get where I am
simply from the top?

      Thank you Punam…sometimes we really need to look back and see if we can lend a hand to some people in need of our help..so people just need some push and encouragement especially those who are broken and hurt and thought they cant make it.

    Brava! A wonderful use of the words and a real lesson on what it means to be a hero. In the business world the true leaders are the ones who got to the top and brought others with them as opposed to the ones who used everyone as a stepping stone and kicked them down the mountain! Wish more people would understand that success is never enjoyable when bereft of friends…

  7. That’s a good question! Do we climb back down to help others up or do we stay at the top and encourage them to climb up? Lovely poem.

        Yes, more or less. We’re not officially in quarantine, but everyone is told to stay home as much possible, only essential workers are told to commute to work, and lots of schools and businesses have closed down.
