ON TOP OF THE EARTH

ON TOP OF THE WORLD

Committed to a sole purpose
I’d forgotten  everything else
Days passed and nights lost 
Nothing seemed more important
Nothing felt more necessary
It was getting harder each second
Starting  to seem impossible
Filled with anxiety…..I felt myself fall apart
But giving up was not an option
You can  to do this….Said my conscience
No you can’t, argued my brain
My conscience supported me
When my brain didn’t
 that’s where my  journey began
And I didn’t stop ….not until the end
I’d scaled the greatest heights
Defied all my fears
And emerged victorious
An arduous task indeed 
But a rewarding escapade
 
The patriot in me was proud
And the dreamer  in me was satiated  
When I made the flag of my country
Sit on top of the world
