The Tallest Peak

When I reached the peak

what did I find?

A taller mountain sitting

just behind.

In my quest to reach the

tallest spot

I continued on aiming for

the goal I sought.

Until at last. I slowly

came to see

the tallest peak was somewhere

I would never be.

So I turned myself around

as my goal withdrew

and realized in my quest to reach

the tallest peak’s view

I missed many a perfect vista

and beautiful moment

that would have delighted and

provided enjoyment.
