Poem: Ascent

Note: This is the 125th blog post on Electric/Eccentric.


Hold on to the slick stone and

Stay steady as you reach up, up, up

Up higher, off-balance, still breathing

Despite gravity’s cruel grip and creation’s grave cast

Height only holds you if you try not to feel fear.


Feel the pull, feel it, let it drag at you but

Don’t fall down because you are strong, you are beautiful

And you deserve to see the stars from the peak of imperfection.
