MOUNTAIN OF SORROWS

IMG_8811c

Written by Alex Hicks and HastyWords

The rocks were sharp

Bruising the soles of my feet

The walk was long

And the path was steep

 

I felt lost

Abandoned hope

As I tried to climb

That rocky slope

 

On my own I struggle

Ascending higher

Looking for wisdom

Pieces of knowledge to acquire

 

I reached a cliff face

Jagged and worn

I gazed at the top

My confidence scorned

 

Motivation diminished

I sat to rest awhile

Contemplating the direction

My confusion wrapped in denial

 

To find another path

Would be to admit defeat

With a swig from my canteen

I returned to my feet.

 

The sun rose to light my way

The air full of singing sparrows

A smile met my lips and I knew

Here is where I’ve left my sorrows
