Footsteps

Standing at the foot of the great mountains,

Staring at the footprints of those that made it to the top,

Whose peak pierce the fabric of the sky;

Glaring and gawking at the enormity

And the task ahead

I quake and tremble

And feel my stomach lurch

My shoulders slump

And a sudden weariness wraps around me

There is one emotion coursing through me

I am overwhelmed.

  1. “Standing at the Foot of
    the Mountain, staring at the
    footprint of those who
    made it to the top”
    And I am overwhelmed!
    Doc, this is an astounding piece!
    Tells how one feels at the brink
    of success or when one is frustrated
    due to too many failures. Oh yes, I am overwhelmed by my own slippery footing
    .
    This is distinctly excellent piece.
    everyday humans as we are, can
    relate to that feeling of despair.
    Well done Doc, a poem well put!
    Words can’t describe how I feel…

      despite that feeling of inadequacy and utter helplessness to achieve our goals, we still need to push through that feeling of being overwhelmed and fight to attain destiny and fulfill purpose! we are never alone in the struggle…

        We must be persistent.
        We must persevere.
        We must keep Faith and
        always be hopeful, because
        We are never alone…thanks
        a lot #Topazo, for always knowing what to say and

  2. The best crop of this poetry for me is gotta be the line ‘Whose peak pierce the fabric of the sky’! There’s such a beauty to those words, its mesmerizing, spellbinding! Well done Doc! And you just went from Doc McSteamy to Doc McDreamy! Wowzer! LOL

    I’d say to the Narrator the following…’Do not be overwhelmed, when you FEED your faith, your doubts STARVE to death- Rev Mrs Hokett! It is the way we react to circumstances, that determines our feelings- Dale Carnegie! And Henry Ford has this to say, ‘Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, either way; you’re right! So, keep moving, climbing, working your way up at your own pace, you’ll reach that peak! Don’t despair, whatever you do, keep moving and success will be ultimately yours, with God on your side!

    In closing, Success is never final, failure is never fatal; its courage that counts- John Wooden! Soar on up Doc McDreamy, you’re well on your way to the top! Rooting for ya all the way! LOL
