All along it was I
who was the girl from the mountain
and I
climbed down one day when they said
we do not want to hear
and I
said well that’s a shame because I’m still going to say
the truth
because girls from mountains know best
they can see all the way across and all the way back
it is said
the lesson is in the journey
and I have taken many
climbing up and down the mountain
so I know
the mountain is a state of being
the journey is able to be willing
to look
as we strain to see over the top
we should have taken more care
with each step we took
