Climbing

by Melissa Minners
 


 

Climbing…climbing…

The hill keeps getting steeper.

The longer I walk,

The less ground I gain.

 

What will happen

If the grade becomes too hard to climb?

How much longer

Before my determination falters?

 

Clawing…scraping…

Sliding down the hill.

I keep on climbing,

But the slope is steeper still.
