Dragging limbs of lead up and up, on and on

So heavy, so incredibly heavy

Cannot carry on but I have no choice

Stop and look around

Villages once so large are now so small

Like a model village in my clutches

I reach out and pick up cottages a pub a church

All in my hands, in my grasp

Heather snaps at my heels

Its coarseness reminds me to move on

To higher ground where my goal lies

Slowing down as the heather gets thicker

The earth like a mattress bouncing my

Weary limbs back ready for one more

Tired stride towards a summit that is forever

Disappearing, getting further and further away

And then there it is

The summit that is my goal, my aim

Limbs as light as air now as

I race towards my nirvana

And then here I am

Sat on top of the world
