The Clock Tower (Gears And Chains) - Poem by Justin Gildow

In the clock tower
I'm at the way bottom
Looking up
At the many gears and chains
I can tell that I've got a long way to go

Climbing up
One by one
On the gears and chains
I have to watch myself
Watch where I go
So I don't fall
And plummet to my death
But at the same time
I have to be on my guard
Against bats and shape shifting ghosts
They'd love nothing more than to knock
me off
And to end my journey

Climbing up
One after another
On the gears and chains
I'm tired and I'm sore
I've had to use so much strength that I
never knew I had before
Or thought I had before
But I must continue on
It's not going to get any easier
In the clock tower
