Mountain

the wind drives down the mountain and blows me off course

first one way
    then another

the summit is in sight
    but i can’t see you anywhere

i tell the wind it cannot dissuade me from my path

you are there
you are there

but the wind drives down the mountain
    and does not hear

i’ve heard nothing from you as i look towards the summit

your voice is lost in the air
    scattered in the winds
        diffused in the updrafts
            diluted in the vastness of the sky

the wind drives down the mountain
    i stand my ground and guard my directions
    i kneel and face towards the summit
    my legs are stone and my spirit hardened
    i close my eyes to remove the distance
    i close my ears to the howling lies

i will not believe the wind

    never believe the wind

you are there

you are there

    i know that you are there
