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.
