Promises To Keep

My mountain is high,

and the climb is steep.

But there are wishes to wish,

and promises to keep.

As I struggle to climb,

this mountain of mine,

I leave all my worries,

and baggage behind.

Try though I may,

I fall a lot.

But the important thing is,

I must never stop!

It always seems easier,

for the other guy.

The answers to complex,

for the reasons why.

When I want to give up,

and  I want to die,

I’ll remember the reasons,

for making the climb.

I’m a fighter you see.

I’ve got dreams to dream.

I’ve got the power in hand,

and the courage in me.

My fighting spirit,

will win by far.

I’ll face up to my problems.

Whatever they are.

My mountain is high,

and the climb is steep.

But there are wishes to wish,

and promises to keep.
