The Mountain Always Prevails - Poem by Janak Desai

a mountain …
does not fall,
nor recede;
does not crumble,
nor lose the height;

a fog may surround it,
a cloud may cover it,
but, only for a while;

and the fog…
always lifts,
the clouds
always rain,
given time;

i too...
i too must rise,
i too must stand tall,
a mountain can,
a mountain does;

and, unlike the mountain...
the fog always crumbles,
and, then...
the mountain,
as always,
Prevails
