Godless Man

Godless Man

Up the winding path
An impossibly high mountain
Slick with ice
Steepened mounds of rock
Coated by the powder of snow
Mustn’t stop for long
Progressing onwards
Stumbling and slipping
Grasping at imagined space
Some help guide
Others walk along
Some for moments
Others for years
Few for life
The peak lies shrouded
Hidden but present
A beacon of light
Amidst the dark below
A glimmer of hope
Amidst swaths of fear
Tumbling down
They surround you
Fallen travellers
Your ascendant
Your brethren
You trudge onward
Steel yourself against the cold
Ascending toward destiny
Amongst the divine
Amongst the mortal
A man
Amongst gods
