Scaling Sheer Cliffs

Remember, when your grip is loose,
and the dirt is calling you down,
that there are those who climb mountains for fun;
humans, like you, using fists and toes,
fingerholds and crampons,
waving their arms for circulation,
always moving towards the stars,
all for fun.

So whatever mountain lies ahead,
and whatever reason you have to scale it
(vengeance, pride, lust, greed)
remember that there are those who make harder climbs
for fun.
