The Climb

Like what was expected of her
She climbed…
and climbed
and climbed.
Success, the destination
Glory, the promise
Praise, the fuel that fed her fire
Below her now,
They wait
Hoping her coat tails will reach them
Fooled by the same dream
That made her climb…
And climb…
And climb.
And now she takes pause
Regarding the empty void of nothingness
That lies below,
Still the same,
Still discontent
Still driven.
With a deep breath and a silent wish
She turns,
And climbs
And climbs
And climbs.
