Mountain Top

Mountain Top.

I went to the highest mountaintop to look around,
I climbed over moss and snow to hear the silent sound.
This world can be so full noisy clamor,
Amongst this clamor, I reached for succor and valor.

I searched many an hour from my mountain top perch,
For truth under blade of grass and shrub, I did vainly search.
Truth comes with great difficultly to so many in this world,
It has become that thing upon the dung heap hurled.

I sat viewing green valley and mount snow capped,
I’ve longed to find light in a world where none is trapped.
This world to my distress lacks the passion for light,
It has vanished, as a magician would conjure hand slight.

From craggy seat into the green valley, I saw a whitened church,
Memories long forgotten, memories gave hope to my search.
Jesus my Lord is the way, the truth and the light of the earth,
I will, you must remember this to give your day worth.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is very easy to look at this world and see the dark side, and believe me it is there. This world can be cruel, shootings, rapes, pedophilia our news is full of them.
But there is hope this world has been given a chance to repent.
