Ascension to crest the summit
takes efforts borne not on wings.
Gradual progress is needed
steady plodding steps.
Lessons need to be learned
control must be applied.
Discipline and self awareness
are keys to progress.
With time my goals will be met.
By embracing the challenge
the task will seem less arduous.
Belief and faith can lighten my burden
but friends and family can only lend a hand.
In the end it is my road alone,
my steps to take.
