UP HILL

At the bottom of the hill…
What’s the use? Who cares...
Clouds up there, blocking any possible view...
Couldn’t see if I was there, too tired to move...

Frozen in time and space
Ah! It’s that damn mountain in the way
It shouldn't be there
Big enough bomb, no mountain!

No trees dropping leaves
No loud irritating birds dropping...
No goody two shoes bothering...
Let’s blow it all up.

Really seems time is slow today
Perhaps if I move slowly...
So I start up the hill
Damn rocks and weeds!

Higher now, closer to the top
Perhaps there is a top, probably not
Maybe there will be daylight
Ugh! It cold up here!

Closer to the top now
The clouds are vanishing
The sun’s starting to shine
Maybe rising doesn’t have to hurt

Well, it’s done! I'm at the top
Clear as a bell in every direction
Visible for miles and miles
What a nice day!
Something great to share!

Moving from the bottom
The bottom of I don’t care
Frozen in nowhere.
To taking some action
Getting somewhere.
Maybe communicate!
Communicate the beauty to others
Trying to pull others up the mountain.

If only they’ll listen
If only they’ll read
How will I know?
Good advice,
Will they heed?
How will I know?

Man’s better at greater heights
It's so much easier to see
Abilities come up, perceptions rise
Communication brightens, enlightens!
How will I know?
Did they read?
Did they listen?
How will I know?
