That is not why I climbed that mountain
Although the mountain is famous
That is not why I packed my bags
Never knowing if I would return

I am as free as the rock and ice
Yet the cost of losing me would be dear
I represent my spirit
That wants to be in air

It is not for the challenge
Though the challenge is great
I like each step to be remembered
Scratched in rock and ice

I make claims to myself
With no reproach
The highest I can be
I must physically get there

I climbed that mountain
Because the word exists
I climb
Because that is my nature

This comes from: Camp4
