No Sense At All

Maybe our mountains are too high
Maybe we aren't strong enough
Perhaps we should climb smaller mountains
Recognize too how long they'll take to climb

But as a life's goal, to be a mere climber of hills
Who cares if the mountain's too big
So what if you never reach the peak

And what if you fail
That's a hell of a long fall
Makes no sense at all

But then what mountain climber ever had much sense
So long as you can enjoy the climb
And hey, at least you tried


  1. That's the correct attitude.

  2. A fantastic poem. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. Thanks Tammy and Dwayne. I hope it comes across as I do believe it. Especially if the outcome can be ignored. Like the Zen master archer who knows not to aim for the target ...

  4. Why is it that you have an avatar but we don't? My wordpress avatar is quite awesome.

  5. Colour me confused, Tammy. What you talking about?
