Climbing my Mountain

I am climbing my mountain
Little by little, step by step,
Over one stone and then another,
I’ll not look at my bruises,
I’ll not quit else my effort will be vain.

I am climbing my mountain
Though the road may seem dim,
Success is at the corner,
But I’m getting closer to the tape.
There, I’ll forget how hard t’was to begin.

I am climbing my mountain
Though steep it may be,
I must get to the very top,
My teeth are tightly grit
For in my head rings NO PAIN, NO GAIN.

I am climbing my mountain
Yesterday was, today is, tomorrow will be
All different stories but success to me is a must.
I will get there, I know I surely will.
Let them come: rain, sunshine and even hail.

I am climbing my mountain
And my eyes are straight ahead.
I look not to the right or left,
Whoever stops, let them stop and wait
I will win. I won’t faint. I will win.
