The ascent was slow… The bars so taxing, The pitfalls so glaring Some I stumbled into.
The impediments choking The watchdogs quiescent, Waiting to scowl and sneer At my achievements.
Craving to keep up Sometimes I leaped up To trounce those wicked eyes, Their evil designs.
Did I ever care? Fear never threatened me My own faith in me Strengthened me, my conviction.
I will reach the top I always keep my promises My optimism as alive as ever I persevere…I continue…
I have restarted my climb Each bar is now more intriguing Each step is more fulfilling Zenith is waiting! For me!
