going up

James Rainsford

i gaze towards the finish ahead
fatigue grips me before i begin
looking
fearing
dreading
it never ends unless i start

the steps above me seem endless
ever pressing towards the top
walking
stepping
climbing
a journey stretching in the distance

the goal above is waiting there
the destination awaiting my arrival
striving
burning
longing
each step harder than before

awaiting is such wonder and glory
invisible now but altogether real
singing
dancing
resting
worthy of the effort and toil
