Wallowing in the murkiness
Head above water- heart sinks under.
Foul pond in the dale
- exposed summit across the tundra
Jetty direct above me
The cold shadows I do swim
There is light all around you
But for me, its cold and dim.
Atop the shining summit
Crystal waters just beyond
I, left struggling in the murkiness
Of the dank and dreadful pond.
You reveal secrets of the summit
Its sweet ascent and blissful view
I wonder if I could make the journey
-admiring from afar, like you do?
