THE MOUNTAIN

Written by: Hector Leyva

THE MOUNTAIN ISN'T THE ENEMY,
IT HAS NO WILL OR IDENTITY.
THE HIKER HAS A CHALLENGE,
SOMETHING HE MUST CHANGE.

SUCCEEDING IS HIS GOAL,
BUT HE MUST REACH IT SLOW.
THE MOUNTAIN DOESN'T FIGHT BACK,
IT MERELY ROCKS ON A STACK.

THE ENEMY IS THE HIKER HIMSELF,
FIGHTING PAIN, FATIGUE AND HIMSELF.
THE MOUNTAIN DOES NOTHING BUT BE,
AT THE TOP THE HIKER THIS DOES SEE.
