I’M GOING UP TO THE MOUNTAIN
I’ll be leaving in the morning at first daylight,
I’m going up to the mountain to breathe and think.
It’s time that I get away from here for a while,
There is a very special place that waits for me.
Very different from down below where so much tension lives,
On the mountain, there exists a calming peace like no other.
Tonight I’ll make camp and spend time alone with nature,
Sitting by a warm fire eating fresh fish caught in the stream.
Being alone can be a bit frightening just as most peaceful,
A gun I do carry In case of sudden or nightly visitors.
A drink In hand and this much needed time up here on this land,
Tonight I sleep, In the morning I’ll slow down and see the world.
