Serenity

As I sit here

Here at the top of the world

I’m struck by a sense

Of peace, of serenity

Families swarm and friends pant

For the trek to the top

Is not one for the meek

But the reward is grand

Is this what Paradise is?

A feeling of unending peace

Far from the troubles of the world

And surrounded by strangers?

The metaphor amuses me further

As I turn and find myself

Gazing upon a white cross

Affixed as one does an angel to a pine

Viewing the world from such a height

Gives one a sense of release

A distance from your problems

A new perspective on one’s life
