The Mountain

There it is…the mountain…I swear I can almost hear it’s groan, forewarning my doom. There’s no way to go around it, no passage through it. So… I guess I’ll have to climb it. I look to see if I can find the very tip top…my head back as far as my neck will allow…too far away…too high…no bright and shining peak in view. I know I can’t stay here…here is no where and I fear the wolves that must linger very near…hungry and waiting to tear me apart.Tis desolate land, here in the shadow of this Mountain, but to stay is to perish, as what was once known is no longer. Here is not an option any more. I don’t feel that I am equipped to tackle this engorged mass of rock. I have not had to stand in this place of utter confusion. No past victories to make a to do or a not to do list by. I took my first steps today and before I could connect a fluid thought or move the distance measured in length of my short little body, I fell… unmercifully to my knees. I could only lay there, my face in the rubble my feet kicked up…and I cried…and I screamed at this mountain that threatens to break me. Pray…Pray…the word kept floating across my weary mind as I layed there with no desire to even pick myself up out of the dirt. Pray…Pray…I have prayed!!! I yelled to the mountain, as though it was the force behind the voice that would not let me be. I have prayed more times then I can remember, as I came to this undecided world that I live in now. I asked the question that has yet to be answered…Why??? I have no answer, only this mountain big as the world to climb and I’m scared. Pray? “God Help me” are the only words I could think of… “God help me!” the only words I can say…
