AGE IS A MOUNTAIN – A poem by Maryln Abah

Being an adult

is an uphill task.
A grownup’s smile, many times is a mask.
The burden of decision making;
And through the sea of humans, navigating.
Climbing the mountain of age,
New giants to slay at every stage.

When a baby cries, its parents respond.
Who can an adult cry to though its tears form a pond?
A child needs not to ask its parent for money;
An adult pays for the smallest taste of honey.
Climbing the mountain of age,
One tries to become a sage.

Being an adult is very difficult.
Little wonder some people join cults.
Not that this makes life easier,
For it has its own costs, usually weightier.
Climbing the mountain of age,
One learns to live within his wage.
