How come it can be this hard
To climb these mountains in my path
And just a small mistake
Is all it takes to slide back down?
How come it can be this tough
To climb the steps in this building?
And just a little fail
Brings me straight back down.
How come it's never quite enough
And the journey's never easy?
Could it be because
Joy keeps falling out of reach?
How come although I never stop
I still can't reach a spot
Where there's a cosy space
To sit down?
Perhaps, in this game we're given
The point is to avoid the top
The aim is simply to keep going
And it's the best of luck to still be close to the start.
