Mountain of Knowledge
Knowledge is like climbing a mountain.
We are unsure about how the journey begins.
From a single blade of grass
to a forest of trees,
the smallest ant
to the largest elephant; all start with a single seed.
And knowledge, like the seed, must be nurtured.
From the moment life is breathed into our bodies
we continue to learn.
And like climbing a mountain,
each step must be cautious, lest we stumble and fall.
We each have different perceptions about how hard it will be to climb
but once at the top the seed of knowledge is in full bloom
and the view can be enjoyed by all.
