The Eyes of Faith

Triumph stands at the top of hill
Shining bright like a star
So far, so elusive
It appears another world away

To those at the foot of the hill

But for those who toil and slog up its steep gradient, its far closer
It is within them
The indelible image impressed on their hearts
Burned onto the back of their retinas
It wafts in and out of their dreams
And it is the first thing their mind turns to
It may be out of view as they scale upwards
But they don’t need to see it to keep going
Their heart is set, their vision is clear
And nothing will make them let go
