"What if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection?" -Calvin & Hobbes

The higher you climb, the better it gets

And each time you fall, you live with regrets

I've learned that your dreams are always in reach

That sunshine gets brighter, and odd ends always meet

Patience is a virtue, yet I find it hard to wait

But we each have a plan, our own predetermined fate

I've been taught to think fast, but to speak slow with my mouth

As a mountain climber once told me "If you want to be a bird, migrate south"

The author's comments:
The guy that I like climbs mountains, and it's his passion. He always tells me how much he wants me to go to the mountains with him. And when I told him that my dream was to move away from my family, he gave me the best advice anyone has ever given me. "If you want to be a bird, migrate south". (:
