    i choose the mountain
    you'd have obviously been given reason (academically) to ascend which is the reason why you'd want to go with a difficult choice.
    only if the mountain has a pool can you choose to go up.
    remember that the best things in life are the ones that are without complication
    and bear in mind that mountain can be lowered into valleys yet valleys can not be raised into mountains.
    true power is in the simple and dark ways, ones that masses won't choose to take.
    i am Thabani Khumalo and i know.
