We were told to go to the mountain,
for we would find peace.
We were told to name our steps
so that the world will feel our presence
right above every step that will ever make our pace.
For recognition — I suppose!
There's a certain Joy that comes with an accomplishment.
Some say it's like a wave that shows the soul's energy at the moment.
Failure brings an emptiness we dare not wish to feel!
But atop the mountain,
Our hopes were fatter than reality.
I guess we were too blind to faze the fog

Steeps and holes are part of Life!
But we must journey to the mountain to know what we don't know.
And we must climb to the the peak to know better!
Failure isn't death.
And death is yet to be the end.
