Upward Climb


Weary feet
Sore feet
Upward, upward climb
Ruddy glow
Taxing glow
Upward, upward climb
Heavy wheel hanging from neck
Sore eyes, parched throat
Upward, upward climb
Shuddering earth
Painful earth
Upward, upward climb
Dying light
Trying light
Upward, upward climb
Steaming stones below bleeding feet
Painful breath, beating hearts
Upward, upward climb
Final journey
Hardest journey
Upward, upward climb
Roaring flame
Teasing flame
Upward, upward climb
Ending it all
Failing it all
Upward, upward climb
