I am A Mountain

      I am a Mountain  

I am a mountain standing tall 
All look up and admire my form
Of pristine scenes and water falls
Of life’s highs and lows I’ve seen it all

While securely anchored in this place
Watching the world increase in pace
I see life passing by and cry
For time to stop and wonder why

If life has a beginning and an end
What sort of a message does this send
We think that life is like a dream 
But all is not quite what it seems

No cleansing rain falls on this mount
No refreshing snowflakes do I count
I’m just a mountain on the wall
I’m a picture – that’s all

    Brian, I really enjoyed reading this and reveled at the intended ending twist. I'm quite mechanical with my rhyme while yours flows. I enjoy this, but it's difficult for me to write that way.

    We all try and sometimes succeed. I live what I write make believe is not part of me. I have that picture on the wall of a mountain I have climbed. We all have mountains to climband and they are beatable Thanks Mark
