    Rarely Rhyme

    Random thoughts that came to my mind when on a hike trail. Didn't want to change the first thoughts that came to my mind so pardon the lack of rhyme /style





    Sun and Rain will
    wither you not,
    Keep going forward,
    with everything you've got.

    Each rock on the hill
    is like a person in life,
    Neither a friend Nor a foe,
    merely rocks in your journey.

    Some help you climb,
    Some make you fall,
    Some are moving,
    With whom you have to be careful.

    Some rocks are enormous
    You could take another route
    Or take up such feats
    If you've got the grit

    But if it will wither you
    take the lighter route.
    The journey is important
    As much as the destination.

    Is it better to get there first
    but be worn out and broken?
    or get there when you can
    but enjoy the climb.

    Falls are inevitable
    Some make you cry
    Some make you laugh,
    But success is for the one
    who gets up and goes again.

    Others may have
    reached first,
    or reached easily
    Let it inspire,
    not challenge or envy

    Follow the leaders' spirits
    Not their steps.
    For what rock was stable for them
    may move when you step on it
    There are hundreds of other rocks around
    waiting to be your stepping stone

    You may fall,
    cuts are aesthetic bruises
    But the body's ache
    is a panacea for the hearts'

    Hurtful words,
    unspoken feelings,
    silent tears and
    noisy anger,
    all were forgotten
    when holding on
    to a stone for life.

    No I can't go, I ll fall
    Trust your shoes, said one
    How will I come down ?
    Live for the moment, said another
    What if I scar my skin or break my teeth- I worried
    So you don't mind if you break your leg?

    So I learned,
    to keep climbing,
    Trust your hands.
    Trust your feet.
    Trust your shoes.

    You have never seen the summit
    But you climb hoping it will be beautiful.
    You may find gold on your way
    But there is peace at the top.
    Stop not.

    Wow! What a poetical, beautiful description of your hiking experience!
    Rhyme may be rare but not completely absent but there is imagery throughout- all lines mean two things! Great! All truths too! Loved it! Congrats, chevy!
