Journey to the Mountain


I journey to the mountain
To face the war I waged
My thoughts are filled with victory
But inside I’m afraid

To face what I have longed to face
To face what is unknown
Forward I shall continue
Until what is unknown is known

Surrounded by the enemy unexpectedly
I try to draw my sword
But it isn’t next to me
And I am also standing alone

I am alone once again
It feels like cement is on my feet
I close my eyes and count to ten
Yet when I open my eyes I cannot see

A casulaty of this battle field
I shall someday be
Surrounded by all my fears
I know I shall face defeat

Heart pounding
Skin sweating
Eyes open but I can’t see
I am fighting my own demons
That reside in me

My thoughts are taking me everywhere
But the truth I can’t escape
And soon I find myself standing
In another unfamiliar place

In the sea I so stand
With a rage that can’t be tamed
Surrounded by an endless sea
But my hands are covered in flames

So much power I have within
Yet I am unable to use
I feel like I have not the time to spend
On battling my dark inner truths

But running serves no purpose
For the enemy gets stronger with my retreat
I have to one day face my fears
I have to overcome obstacles put in place by me

I journey to the mountain
To face the war that inside I waged
My thoughts are filled with victory
But inside I’m afraid

I have to face the truth inside
I have to come to terms with what’s within
I am fighting a battle with my fears
And today I plan to win
