Climbing the Mountain

‘Climbing the Mountain’

Do not turn your face

when they call to you

to say:

“Oh, you weak girl.

You will never make it."

They will point

at your shabby clothes

and say they aren’t fit

for the palaces on high.

They may even tell you

the mountain peak

doesn’t exist.

Walk on.

There is a place

made for you

at the top of the world.
