The Upward Climb

While you catch your breath from the last upward climb,

Look behind you at the precarious path you have scaled.

Each individual step may have been perceived as insignificant

Yet put together they equal thousands of diligent steps upward

A steep and necessary evolution of body, mind, and soul.

While there is still mountain left ahead to climb, do not be afraid;

You will face that challenge as you have the others before

With bravery, fortitude, and determination with each step.
