Why are you sitting in the dust?
Where’s your honor? Stand!
Of course this path is treacherous
Granite cliffs, monoliths
The top is further than it seems
Or did you think you would not fall?
This is a mountain, after all, and you are only human
And clearly you are weak
But time and fate are on our side
As we press on toward the peak.
I have seen the other side.
You won’t be disappointed.
