There Was Only Me

There was me.
There was me and the line.
There was me and the wall.
There was me and the hurdle.
There was me and the foe.
There was me and the challenge.
There was me and the doubt.
There was me and the mountain.
There was me and the darkness.
There was me and the fear.
I crossed the line.
I scaled the wall.
I leapt the hurdle.
I bested the foe.
I rose to the challenge.
I forsook the doubt.
I climbed the mountain.
I lit up the darkness.
I faced the fear.
There was only me.

A wise, and moving poem. Bob Dylan said, 'Love is just a four-letter word'. So is 'poem' and so is 'word' - so is 'song' - it seems you've sent a message to us all - loved this.
I agree 100%, Love is a sacred word. which not need to be spoken, only felt.
