A Mountain to Climb (Sevenfold)

You climb one hill, pay one bill
Only to find a mountain
With no fountain of relief…

In belief, you carry on…

You work, then lurk in shadows;
You have nowhere else to go
To show the worth of your birth.

        1. Aruna, I just discovered that you need to click on her name, “Manan Unleashed,” and then request access… For right now, she has made her blog private. This is what I had to do! Good day to you! πŸ™‚

  1. Succinct! I am amazed at the apparent ease with which you’ve outlined humanity’s daily struggles for work, recognition and to provide for themselves. In fact, it’s not just life; with the words ‘mountain’ and ‘belief’ you’ve touched upon the essence of John Bunyan’s classic novel as well. A masterful expression of topics that carry so much depth! A veritable joy to read!! πŸ™‚

    1. Comparable to John Bunyan? Truly, I do not believe I have EVER received such an high compliment! Of course, I very deeply appreciate all of your words of approbation. In what you say I can see that I accomplished my literary goal, which is always quite rewarding. Thank you so very much! All the best to you w/blessings! πŸ™‚

      1. Well, I did think the poem had a clear dual essence, which is delightful! And you certainly have put across your meaning very well. What I’m still amazed at is the brevity of language and images used to portray that meaning! Remarkable indeed!! Thank you for the blessings, and I do send them back to you manifold. πŸ™‚

    1. Indeed, it seems to speak to much of humanity as well as to me personally… Certainly, this one came from the depths of my soul, and I’m so glad you can identify! Thank you! πŸ™‚
