The Climb

 

Photo and Poem by Kloipy (Seth Dombach)

 

The years of searching find me

Buried beneath the weight of the world

Each shallow breath a torturous climb towards the top

My fingers torn and bruised

But still I press on and on and on

To gasp for the sacred air

To fill my lungs with it to the point of bursting

To blind my eyes in the brilliance of the light

So that I; I can see for the first time
