“It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out; it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.” – Robert W. Service.


It’s not the height of the mountain ahead that’s intimidating,
it’s the grain of sand in your shoe that’s killing,


you can’t change the size and height of the mountain,
but you can shake out the grain of sand and stop the pain
thats stopping you from reaching the mountain;


what is outside your control can’t stop you,
life’s biggest barriers are what you can bring under your control but refuse to.

So you can conquer the mountain

but you must first conquer yourself.
