Friday Poem , The Valley And The Mountain Top

The Valley And The Mountain Top Nigel Borrington 2

The Valley And The Mountain Top

Though standing in this valley
with yet the mountain top in view,
I will indulge my aspiration
to see the sights from that point too!

This will be my challenge,
to get from here to there!
I’ll see the view from the mountain top,
and breath the mountain top air!

This is quite the challenge I chose
but I must make it to the top!
If the attempt determines
the success or failure,
“No way now can I stop!!!”

The Valley And The Mountain Top Nigel Borrington

There it is! I can see the top!
Mere feet am I away from my goal!
This challenge has pushed the limits,
I believe of my heart, mind, body and soul!

Though standing on this mountain top
with the view of the valley below,
I indulged my aspiration,
from my indulgement
this I do know!

As wonderful as the view is from here
to as far as the eye can see,
I must never forget where this started from,
with the view standing in the valley!
