Climb

Climb…

Every time I try to climb these mountains I fall tumbling downwards…it is not a pretty site…these mountains cannot be conquered….I stop trying and now seek out the road to nowhere…hastily I start the journey not looking back but towards the mirage…the path is littered with dunes…as I cover my face from the dry desert dust….it looks like I can’t escape it…I will still have to climb….mountains they are not but these dunes have their own challenges….I reject the opportunity to climb because I don’t want to fall so I go round the first dune but alas…more dunes…bigger and nastier…..I have to escape this….shutting my eyes as tight as I can, I escape….I can always count on my imagination…..this takes me to a quiet lake…lifeless, clear and blue…it draws me nearer. Impulsively I dive in, forgetting I am a beginner, it didn’t matter I thought, as the lake seem so gentle….before completing my first stroke the water roars into life, throwing me so high I saw the dunes in the horizon….as I crash against the waters I realise that gentle it is not but a …..before I could say beast…..the second current of waves hit me, this time violently throwing me from side to side….I open my eyes as wide as I can and I see them all, the 3rd, 4th, 5th and so on…all coming towards me….I wished for my mountains but they are no where to be found……I have no choice, I have to climb these waves or they will reap me apart……as the first of the lot hit me I open my eyes and the dunes were higher….so much dust…I gave a big sigh…and continued on the path not attempting to go round the next dune…….
