Mountain (Common metaphor I use...) Posted on 07-30-2004
Wisdom_Tree

I stopped to look down, look up; took in the view and I wondered. (The Contemplation) Is the climb worth more than the drop... can it be that I can never stop? I look at my clock and I almost fall down thinking wow thats a fall enough to break the Now into a million Thens... Have I come too far or is this where it ends... Have my sins, rights and wrongs come to heavenly dividends? Gazing up I make amends, and bend my knee again... But I stopped to look down, look up; took in the view and I pondered. (The Frustration) Why, when I climb, does it feel like im fallin Like Im screaming Gods name and he doesnt hear me callin voicemail like "This is the Almighty leave a mesage" I thought to two-way him, but I forgot to text him Shoulda got a Nextel... oh well He caught me last time when I fell, but Im afraid to fall and go to hell But I stopped to look down, look up; took in the view like a child. (The Prostration) Maybe the serendipity lies in simplicity You keep reaching, youll eventually Get what you need, straight and explicitly Yet I take another step, feels like im climbing from whence I came Damn, it feels like Im mountain climbing in the rain The ends and the means...does the Journey clean the Stain? Guess I have to reanalyze and stop again. So I stopped to look down, look up; tookin the view and I smiled. (The Explanation) My scrapes and bruises became my shields and swords These words fight battles like the Trojan Wars My fall was my climb, now Im on accord And when the string breaks I sing "Great" for His sake Im only...and more than Tres and Job fell harder Because of my pain, I only grow smarter Guess I'll live a hero and not die a martyr. (Dedicated to those of you who are struggling on that mountain with me...)
