A story of myths

Once held by Zeus

Atop Mt. Olympus

Now a story of man

When man decides

This is who I am

The wearer of brute

Endurance of pain

Battling fatigue

Exhaustion of mind

Still climbing

Never stopping

Only up,

Where the oracle rests

As one feat

Gives humanity a feast

To devour the story

Our story to be told

When man decides

In the might of the Good

Humanity rises

Zeus a muse no more

In each other

Is where human strength

Topples mountains

And eternal evils

Come to lay with Zeus

In stories that are no more;

In human faith I give

My pursuits, my beliefs

In overcoming

Are right before me,

Us, only climbing

Each mountain

Now resting below

Another challenge

Another conquering

A destiny now shown
