The climb to success
The bottom of my shoe nervously touched the first rung of the ladder With only a soft tap It was not a Christian Louboutin, with its characteristic bright red sole But I was no less entitled to take this climb
The loud clicking sounds of confident and strident steps rang through my ears Drawing my attention upwards My eyes flickered, fighting against the blinding glare of the sun Shining ever so brightly Mimicking the smiles of those pleased as punch to be close to the top
The bright smile of the sun and its sweltering heat Almost forced me to retreat But this climb is mine to take
I took another step This time a little stronger and louder There was a moving puzzle of faces staring down at me Some with hateful and enquiring eyes Seemingly asking: What are you doing here? Seemingly saying: Your complexion is not of a light and creamy hue Your hair is not long and flowing Where the wind tosses it seductively, with a tickle against your back You have a wooden spoon in your mouth Not a silver one like ours But this climb is mine to take
Not all eyes were filled with the bubbling and overflowing vitriol of hate Some gleamed with care and understanding Softly encouraging me along
There was a maze of hands reaching toward me I could feel their tug-of-war pulling and pushing Some trying to pull me up Others trying to push me down But this climb is mine to take alone. I searched the peripheries of infinity for the other element of love. I bowed down before the Most High at the portals of heaven, But the forbidden love I sought was located elsewhere. My persistence grew and thus I extended my wings and gracefully flew away.
I entered the universe and countless billions of worlds appeared. I marvelled at the wonders of the new creation. I stood fearlessly in the core of the largest sun, And my immortal heart blazed with the fire of eternal passion. The cosmos expanded and aged planets melted down, But my indestructible love shone as the glory of a trillion stars.
what it was. The dynamic energy of my love led me to a green sphere, A vast watery expanse surrounded by dense darkness, A unique life form in a galaxy near the centre of the universe. There I came upon the daughter of love, a terrestrial being, The most beautiful creature I have ever seen. At last I have discovered the complement of love! I went down from the cloud and gazed at her in astonishment, The sight of this gorgeous mortal being intensified my love And I knew I could not go back to my lonely existence without her. attempts to control her ended in surrender. I could not withstand the superlative power of her love. Her love was more powerful than I imagined, I did not think there was any love strong enough to capture me.
I could not possess her or even touch her because I was a disembodied spirit, But I saw eternity in her fiery eyes. And I told her about the preexistence of my love. She showed me the beginning of time, an indescribable precept, The stage where only the source of energy and power exist, And she spoke highly of the Originator of her love. Unleashing my full power could not
alter the law of love. She was a mortal and I was an immortal, An incompatible union could not ensue, And so I became mortal in order that our love could coexist. Her love and my love combined and became one supernatural love, And an infinitesimal presence of physical life came to be. Our transgression would not pass unnoticed or go unpunished; The whole creation became angry at us for violating the rule. Consequently, time separated us and she died because of her error, But time could not annihilate my love. I dematerialised and returned to the pre-existence of my love Where I shall remain in sadness for longer than eternity.
