I will not be labled average -Rachel Joy Scott

The warm sun beats on our backs
The hill seemed never ending as we made our trek
But when you got to the top it was beautiful

Like the work of Michelangelo in the Sistine
The view from the top left you breathless
A timeless scene of beauty and awe

Beyond that there is the place you are standing
The rocky ground makes you feel unsteady
But the hills and valleys make you feel loved

Like the Pieta it moves you to tears
This place is where so many are buried
In this place families were put to rest

With the swiftness of creating man
Those men can be taken away
From the Creation of Adam to the death of man

The beauty of an ancient city
Will forever stand the test of time
As the sun shines on its beauty everyday

This is inspired by a trip I took to Italy a few years ago and my love for Michelangelo.
