Jade Ropalokera, the Traveling Mesmer
keep your grip tight.
Glory comes with a price;
admission is free, at the least.
do not look down.
Keep your eyes up — chin up.
You are not the first, nor the last.
mind your muscles.
Another misstep and
you will become a flat pink coin.
halt your muscles.
The ancient golden walls
shimmer like new — forever young.
rest your sore hands.
Take pride in the moment;
wonder how to climb down later.
