The Climb



Climbing up a mountain, Pulling yourself higher and higher.  Out of the pit of misery. Things seem to look brighter. Grass is growing, Birds are singing, And the sun emerges from the clouds. Then you start to slip, To lose your grasp, And down you fall. Not quite to the bottom, Just teetering on a ledge, Could you go over at any moment

Have you the strength to climb again? The pain of your cut soul Burns like a fire, The anger, hurt and frustration Come flooding back into your mind. The fight for survival starts again. Overcome the fear, Search for the holds, Rely on the support from before. I know it’s going to be difficult, But you did it once, You can do it again. Remember, you’re not the only one – Out there are other climbers Fighting their own battles, Searching their own soul And conquering their own mountains.

    I agree to every teen including me being able to relate to it. Every one has to take the climb in order to make it to the top.

    Very amazing poet. Its so true, life is such a climb. We fall again and again, but always find a way to get back up again.

    This is amazing… this poem speaks to me. As I was reading it, I was also connecting, and I think that’s what makes any piece of writing special.

    I can really relate to this because I face a new climb everyday and with each climb they have their own problems to overcome. I really like this

    Honestly I think this is what the name of the time we are teens should be named. It perfectly says what we go through without the descriptions or details. So, to the person who created that should be awarded with a teen life accomplishment award or whatever….whoever they are they are very smart!!!!
