Up in the mountain she aims to climb,
with hope she dreams to reach the sky.
It seems so near but yet so far,
where to begin is a question mark.
A little steps to start is what it takes,
the patience is absent to think of courage.
Think of giving up to find an escape,
fear arises for dreams become garbage.
Here she visualises a peaceful nature,
the greens, the blues, and the breezy winds.
Rustling leaves ignite her heed,
running stream slip through her fingertips.
Pausing time to appreciate moments.
With clear mind she questions her vision.
Yes it’s far reaching she can agree,
waiting will not earn her any degree.
Decipher the vision to smaller bits,
it is now easier to solve the puzzle piece.
Step-by-step is what it takes,
she focuses on current to kickstart the pace.
Without knowing she has aced the race.
She has finally championed the maze.
“Keep your vision in mind” she said,
for it keeps her dreams alive.
