THE CLIMB

He walked up the stairs
which seemed to have no end
Remembering childhood fantasies
of climbing the highest mountains
undiscovered and never touched
right up into the thin air
He was out of breath on the brink
of disappearing into deep darkness
 
His eyes where dark and grey
the fire that was his joy, his strength
had long since died out like a bonfire
left burning over night, just the
reminicence of charcoal left
This was beyond the hardest journey
he had ever undertaken, but he
had nowhere else to go
 
Exhausted and discouraged
and trembling with fear
he stood frozen in time
in front of a solid door
reached out and silently
opened the portal to somewhere
hope and fire might be found
He was greeted with a smile
