Round the mountain

She’s going round the mountain
the only way she knows
because to climb straight on up
not in her thought processes.

It’s the long way round that ne’er brings in
the full spectrum of belief
in all her dreams and wondrous things
waiting to be claimed.

But she fights through the underbrush
because she knows, has always known,
there are treasures on the round-about
that first must be collected.

They weigh her down, indeed they do,
but once the creep under skin
finally complete
she can become … a flying acrobat.

And then and then once on top
she’ll know she claimed the lot
and the slide back down to ground
no hardship to her crown.

She’s going round the mountain
day by day, step by step.
See her there in mud and slush
and ask if it’s worthwhile.
