Life's Trials

May 22, 2013
The beautiful valley stretched calmly forth
and i traveled through it without a care
I was all alone as i headed north
with no destination and no despair

But my travels led me to a mountain
and, knowing nothing, i started to climb
I did not see that great valley again
for what seemed like an eternities time

I went up and up, away from the ground
Learning every time i stumbled or tripped
Many horrid things tried to tear me down
But i reached the top though my clothes were ripped

Never give up, do the best you can do
Conquer that mountain and learn from it too
