Just Frozen

by stewart

I’ve been climbing this mountain for so long;

I’m exhausted from the effort.


Having forgotten why I started;

My thoughts cloud over from pain and struggle.

Continually, I wonder if it is worth the work?

I’ve heard said, the view at the top is spectacular.


At this point, I do not care

and just want to lay down and sleep-

But part of me will not quit.


Unable to go forward

or go back;

I rest against this cliff face

Unable to move.


Perhaps at sunrise

My energy and resolve will return,

and I can start anew.


Who can say-

For now, I am frozen.

Darkness vs Light

When you create a world where there is much confusion, unrest and the breaking down of long standing norms, who benefits? When people can no longer pay their bills, feed their babies and family, are beset by mysterious illness, and fight extreme weather conditions who gains?
