I Am Everest
I am Everest
I see the hopes of those
Who dare to attempt the summit
I want to call to them
Please, I am so lonely!
I know they cannot hear my pleas
My anger gets the best of me
I am the Mountain Everest
Admirable, Tall, and Strong
I feel the strength of the ones who summit
I feel the despair of those who cannot
I touch their souls and give them strength
I give them trials to prove their worth
I am the fear that lays deep in your heart
Yet I worry that I may never be heard
I cry out against my solitude
Long and livid howls
I understand that my trials are difficult
Some don't make it back alive
But I must remain an impartial judge
I musn't grow to care for my challengers
I want to give my people strength
I want to prove them worthy
I understand that they may be afraid
Unwilling to take up the sword and shield.
I call to them with promises of glory and hope
I will help you ascend beyond the heavens
Become Something beyond your wildest dreams.
What if I fall? They whimper in fear.
To this I must respond with hope
Light a fire within their souls.
Yes you might fall, I admit to the child.
What if you fly?
