All we are

The belt is tucked
The socks pulled up
The warm ups done
It’s time to begin the climb in one

The first few steps
Too steep a trek
I’m short of breath
But it’s a matter of life and death

Then failure strikes
Then hope subsides
Then very much like
A phoenix, from the ashes I rise

Broken and bent
Reorient
A next attempt
Perhaps this time, to achieve what’s meant

But all I am
And all we are
And all we’ve willed
Is the long held dream still unfulfilled

So may we rise
Triumph, surprise
Scale heights conoid
To fill our holes and fill our voids
