I climbed this mountain for the answers
Led here by the legend of your fame
And if I didn’t die I planned to ask you why
Hoping for the answers to my pain.
On the way I fell and bruised my knee
My designer shoes tore up my socks
The blister on my heel assured me pain was real
Mom and Dad had packed my bag with rocks.
Up along the road I met a friend
He joined me for a while in this race
But when we disagreed, he kicked me in the knee
I busted my knuckles on his face.
At last, I reached the summit of life
Hoping you would give me some advice
Better still—repent for the effort I had spent;
For making life so hard to survive.
But, as I sit basking in the sun
Breathing in the sweet, crisp mountain air
I see how far I’ve come, and that you’ve been the One
Giving me the strength to journey here.
