Climbing the mountain of life can be a blast
the paths to the end are varied and vast
some take it slow, planning every step
in effort to avoid the sting of regret
others sprint forward as fast as they can go
always with their eyes on the next plateau
some feel the path less traveled is best
searching for adventure, longing without rest
a few meet the end just as soon as they start
a tragedy that truly can break our hearts
some are content to let others pass them by
they smile the roses, while others choose to fly
whatever the path that we take to the top
let is lead us to the lessons we were meant to be taught
