The Obstacle

With every step it
Is harder to breathe.
The air steals your breath,
As the climb steals your faith.
The sun runs from the cloud,
The little bit of shade gone.
You look down to see how far you've come.
You push on, to go on.

Pushing through the pain,
Through the heat and dry air,
You want to be strong and overcome
Everything, to be there.

The Heavens smile upon you
And praise you with rain.
You made it through the hard part.
The faith you have no longer feigned.
