Standing erect, pointedly to the Heavens,
I take bold strides up the unforgiving mountain,
Each step piercing the ground with reliable footing.
Alone, with the thin air and palpable clouds,
The flow of ideas keep pulling me forward,
Motivating me, cheering me on, urging.
A perfect rainbow reminds me that I’m not in Hell;
Might I even hear guidance from magical children
Hailing an opera in the measureless distance?
The goddess emerges as extraordinary embodiment
Of ambitious spirit that no one can break.
And only lazy deception will fail.
The confident trailblazer
