The Mountain

The mountain I must climb

has gotten steeper,

while the ocean I must cross

has gotten deeper.

My life is falling

apart at the seams,

I’m slowly realising

it’s not all a bad dream.

My eyes are open

and now I can see

the excuse of a man

I don’t want to be.

Reality has dawned,

and everything does not

always turn out right,

especially if like me

you don’t have

 the stomach for the fight.

 What can I do

to help stop this rot

without hurting all

the people I have got.

In the time I have left

I must brave the height

or this mountain will win

and I will be

lost forever in the night.
