Metaphor of Life

I grab onto the rock,
Pulling myself up with all my might,
Cautiously taking each step to the top.

I lean back in my harness,
Letting out a loud yelp,
Overcoming my greatest fears.

I gaze down at the ground 300 feet below,
Thinking about how far I’ve come,
Knowing I will make it to the top.

I look up to the sky,
Understanding I still have a ways to climb,
Realizing I will be okay in the end.

I get to the top,
Looking down once again,
Thinking about the climb I took.

It’s a metaphor of life.
