Volcano By R. Cary


By R. Cary

I have been waiting for this journey 22 years in the making 

Halfway up I am almost there 

A rumbling, a growling

Thunder rages beneath this terrain 

Only upward I know the eruption will arrive

A volcano of ash waiting wanting to leave 

Its ashes on this earth into my mind further 

I have now arrived in this journey is truth 

In this mountain I will live

Crushing its eternal molten seeking to destroy, implode

Reaching the top only one choice to give

I show no fear as I leap into the burning glare

A metaphor for our lives to face what rests deep within

Willing to face the crevasses of our lives

With the dignity of blind belief, no matter what our fears

In every step I will only seek that which requires

The strength of living in my blind faith
