Ascending

Climbing

As you head up the hill

Something carries you on

Crevices becoming the perfect hand holds

Engaging with the rock

Noted men before you have attemped this face before – but

Deny you your moment of glory ? not a chance!

In fact – they’ll be all hearing you yelling your achievements

North to south, East to West – as you

Get to the summit top

Taking the leap

Second Thoughts

it seemed like such a good idea at the time

fuelled by bravado , and a third bottle of champagne

but as you were strapped into your harness

the doubts began to amass

but the time for self-doubt has now gone

you never know – it might be fun

as you head off the basalt ledge

and traverse down the mountains edge

Trust

Trust

Take it from me – its a big thing

Relying on the guys keeping anchor at the top of the rocky mountain

Until you dropped down over the basalt edge

Something bit at you – should I believe this lot

Till you realised – they’re holding the rope you’re tied to.
