mountains

Mountains
mountains can entice you
tame you
and make you wild
mountains can be brutal
mountains can be serene
mountains can be peaceful
mountains can be harsh
cold.
mountains will make you shiver
hit your snares
mountains will drain you
mountains will let you drink
mountains will crack open your lips but only because
mountains will make you smile

mountains will look over you
flags will let you breathe
winds will keep you cold
but rocks will let you sleep
your legs will pray the hills
and the sweat will be the offering
mountains will hug you close
render you shivering

mountains are scary, but mountains are home to gods
mountains are monument
and will teach you to fight the odds
mountains will smile back even when you curse
its got arms of thorns but will pat you like a child
mountains mount before me
my temple,
my stable friend
my rock-star !
