The cliff

Written by: Barakat Sheriff

I have journeyed through the desert
Through thick and thin
I say to myself I just have to win
I have come to the mountain I have to climb 
I begin my ascent
I have to make it to the top
Then suddenly I see it
 The cliff
That moment, everyThing I've done flashes before my eyes
I recap the various moments of my life
Should I turn back or make this dive
Should I remove the shroud of lies I've always told myself
And show myself the stark naked truth
Should I make the decision to know the true me
Should I take the risk or turn back and remain the same.
