Can I make it to the top without a car?
The top of the mountain looks way too far.
With me, I brought two boulders.
As I continued on my way, I put them over my shoulders.
“Together we will make it to the top,” I thought.
But as I went up, my legs began to rot.
As I climb, I fall.
I fall and fall until I am at the point of giving up all.
The boulders were dragging me down.
But it’s my job to get them up there safe and sound.
I became so weak.
I could barely get up and speak.
I will never make it to the top.
I should just give up now and stop.
But then as I was about to turn around
Something in the distance shimmered on the ground.
As I walk towards it, it began to shine bright
As I picked it up I knew things were going to be alright.
I realized what I had to do.
I had to let the boulders go.
It was hard to say goodbye.
As I watched them roll down, I let out a huge sigh.
As I continued, I realized how much lighter I felt
With this new energy, I continued on my route.
As I finally surpassed a lot of obstacles and snow,
I saw the path glistening from below.
The path was so clear, why hadn’t I seen it before?
It was right in front of me, all I had to do was look up from the floor.
I focused so much on the boulders I lost sight of what was in front of me
I can finally see,
The path that leads to the top.
I will not stop.
The top is in sight.
I’m ready to take flight.
Finally, I made it.
I’m glad I didn’t forfeit
Letting go of the boulders was the best thing I could’ve done.
Thank you to the shimmer for being my sun.
Being at the top, I knew I was unstoppable.
I finally knew that I was capable,
Of letting go of the past
That I thought was forever going to last.
Up here I am able to see
My inner peace and who I am meant to be.
