I climb up this slick wall
Full of broken and battered thoughts.
I stop climbing to wipe my brow.
Haven't I been here before?
And yet I keep climbing
Feeling the stone dig into my hands.
But the slick surface defies me yet again.
And I fall.
Until I hit the bottom.
I despair, but I get back up to try again.
I echo the mantra
Endeavor to Persevere
