Life reflected in a climb

It starts beautifully in tropical rain forest beyond majestic mists
Birds of paradise show off their colors to admire their exquisiteness team persists
But there among the deep mists
Casting huge shadow their target exists

The way up starts little bit bumpy but it matters not
The slope is still gentle and of vegetation there is a lot
Word fear was not yet taught 
Or thought

But as vegetation changes from tropical paradise to eerie moorland ever expanding
And the sheer granite rock face seems daunting
While at the top there is volcano blazing
Right now it is not bird of paradise but sad condor that will sing

Yet in his black feathers there is still luster and his visage majesty
The team is still brave and free
But way up soon turns into infinity
And the summit beyond mist hard to see

The air turns thin
That is where real life will begin
The death in precipice is price you pay if you don’t win 
But if you do win you have to do it clean

The challenge tests the very soul
It doesn’t come easy it don’t come hard will it come at all?
Many will stop in fear of fall
But few will continue towards the goal

Higher to the top ice covers the path
And fire of lava is everywhere there’s no ice just in case survival was still in the math
It went from pleasant to unpleasant and now to full of wrath
Now they are thinking endurance before they just needed a bath

First it was easy then manageable but now all hell is breaking loose 
But they still have option of which path to choose 
Thousands of things at once take issues 
Justice is blind as the trouble brews

But they reach the peak at last
As down on the valley mountain shadow will cast
They put the cross on the top of the peak and their victory they broadcast
The daunting challenge their unyielding souls have surpassed
