Reach for the Summit


downhill, being dragged by gravity
frustrations on my back
worn-out, almost on my knees
I need to stand up
the summit I long to see
and breathe air at the top

I travelled far and wide
stumbled and cried
far places I have reached
with sweat I did drench
I’ve watched rivers run dry
been with the fireflies

this journey is at its peak
strength I will seek
no matter how hard
even if it’ll cause me my blood
I will get through the pit
with smile on my lips

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
