Taller Than Mount Everest

Taller Than Mount Everest

Why, must this climb be so hard at times.
I would love to get in a cannon and just shoot to the horizons
The elders told me its not easy
So I brought someone special along with me
We choose this climb, We said we will take this challenge head on
I stumbled, she helped, She slipped I helped, not once we aparted
With a Promise to each other that no matter how high this mountain was, we won’t depart
We didn’t listen to the elders, they warned us about the dangers that comes with this march
But we were young, dumb and ambitious with fire in our full hearts
We headed up not looking back, only of the dream of making it to the top
Closer and Closer we would be to approach the height of this giant rock
And prove the elders wrong about us adolescents
Some days I felt like I was right there just outside the fence
Days were harder than others, But climb is what we must do
No matter the obstacles, at the end of the day, we always would say “I Do”
Then the dark clouds came; rain started to come down and pour
Our hands got wet and slippery down to our pores
Losing the grips of each of our locked twenty fingers
Not together made the climb feel like a cold winter
We were not prepared for this storm, slips turned into falls, falls turned into scars
WIth both of us forgetting how to heal each other, and motivate to keep wanting more
To eventually one of us thought we could get up the mountain faster without the other
When both of us lost sight why we even choose to ascend this giant mountain
But it was never about getting to the peak, but enjoying the adventure on the way to the top
This is still the same mountain that we’ve been facing nothing has swapped
So please bring your 10 fingers to mine so we can interlock
And make this climb easy again for us and make it back to the top
