Mountain Life

life is not lived peak to peak

nor in the valleys deep

but spent upon the slopes of life

the mountain path so steep

To seek the constant high of life

on lofty mountain tops

Will leave you gasp for lack of air

exposed in cold and hot

The lows of life should come and go

but if you stay below

you find you never see new lands

lose chances, never grow

We measure things from peak to peak


We chart the ghastly drop of strife

But we should live between them both

the middle ground of life
