Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings


We always climb to make it to the top of the mountain

But what if we climb to build endurance?

Because what if the endurance makes the mountain-top view more meaningful?

We also try to gain some sort of substance and depth from what we think we need

We go after the right relationships and updating our social media statuses just right

But what do we really want from connecting with another human?

Peace? Meaning? Hope? If we don’t find within ourselves first, we will never fully connect


We go into our corporate offices 9 to 5

Answering to our bosses and co-workers

Do you love the money because it helps make an income?

Or does the money love you?

Do you earn a living to find Peace? Meaning? Hope?

If we aren’t happy with the struggle we won’t be happy with the riches and the material blessings


We will continue to climb

But what are we climbing for?

That’s what you have to ask yourself
