Showdown

A poem I wrote quite a while ago...

 

Showdown

 

The mountain stands quiet in the distance.

I approach.

                    He stands his ground.

I climb, determined.

                                  He fears not.

 

Boots on shale clink like a cowboy’s spurs.

Anger, fatigue, self-doubt.

                                             Unforgiving.

Gray skies surround, icy winds attack.

 

Face to face – no guns drawn.

Today the mountain yields.
