The Mountain Journey - Poem by Casey Lyon
I start at the bottom of the mountain,
I take a rock and another rock as I start going up the mountain,
Rock after rock, I get halfway up on the rough mountain,
Oh dear, the mountain is starting to taunt me,
No, I will make it up no matter how hard it is now!
Rock after rock, here I go trudging up the mountain,
Oops, a rock broke but that’s okay,
Now that I know I can make it now.
I look down and see my partner struggling to make it,
I encourage my partner to make it with me.
I look up and see we are almost to the top, just 2 hours till the top!
I breathe hard, drinking my canteen of water.
I get back to climbing this mountain that has taken me 9 hours.
I climb rock after rock,
Thinking of my family praying me and cheering me on back home.
I climb on a ledge and encourage my partner,
We both get on the ledge and I get out a rope.
I toss the rope to the top and the hook gets on the edge of the top.
I start going up the rope, my partner following my lead.
I stand with my partner, looking around feeling happy.
I accomplished my fear of climbing the mountain with my partner.
So should all of you try to accomplish your fears like I did mine!
