I’ll Climb Alone
I’m strong enough now
to climb alone.
I won’t allow
the creepers
and crawlers
and climbers
to hold me back,
to inch into me
like ivy covering a wall.
I’ll climb alone.
Go straight up
the bleached white staircase
shining through
the undergrowth
showing me the way
up and over.
Quickly now
before it encroaches,
before it overwhelms me.
Up and over.
I know I can do it.
I’m strong enough now.
