At The Mountain Top Poem by Qiniso Mogale

At The Mountain Top

Rating: 4.8


At the Mountain top I look down
and I reflect on my past
At the mountain top I look down
and I realize how far I've come
At the mountain top I see all the
obstacles I've surmounted
At the mountain I see all
the tests I've passed
At the Mountain top I'm grateful to
God for upholding me with His righteous right hand.

At the mountain top I remember
all the girls I've loved before
At the mountain top I look back on
the mistakes that should have been avoided
At the mountain top I look back on
the opportunities I should have utilized
At the mountain top I however realize that it's
no use crying over spilt milk.

At the Mountain Top I pay tribute
to my parents especially my mother
At the mountain top I pay tribute
to my teachers and mentors
At the Mountain top I honour also
my adversaries for bringing out the warrior in me
At the Mountain top I honour those who told
me uncomfortable truths
At the mountain top I realize that as long as I live
I still have more mountains to conquer.

Qiniso, your poem brings back some very pleasant memories of when I first climbed a mountain. And now because of your poem, I can revisit the mountain in my mind's eye and examine my life from the various perspectives that you've presented. Thank you for giving me that opportunity. Excellent write!
