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
