The Mountain

                      The Mountain
The Mountain, it could be the Matterhorn, the Alps 
Or any other large mountain around the World
But not all mountains need to be physically climbed
As a mountain can resemble a large personal problem
A stumbling block in the road of life that needs to be 
Overcome by a clever solution, yes problems are mountains
They are a way of life for us, our brains can solve the easy 
Problems, but there are others which are like mountains
Were you require assistance from friends or family
To solve these situations, man is not perfect and he has
No conception of the mountains that are before him.
A problem large or small can cause grief in some cases
These are the mountains that should be immediately
Climbed, it is our conquest to be the one who conquers
The mountain and become it's master and not it's slave.

    I like this comparison between mountains to be climbed and life problems to be solved.

    Hi Mario, all mountains need to be conquered as there are many in life to overcome, I am so glad you like this poem. Some of my best poems have rated poorly on one site but rated highly on another, it is in the eyes of the beholder, everyone sees things in a different light. Whether poems are poor or great it all depends of personal taste I suppose, I am so happy to meet you and also recieve your comments, please don't hold back if you like or dislike a poem, please let me know, thank you. John
