A Little Piece

by Alexis Marie

We all struggle;
no matter how
high up the mountain
we climb.

don’t fall for the illusion;
being on top the world
–once one reaches out
to grasp what they most desire

the world turns,
with a screeching
sound of resistance,
and we fall head first

towards happenstance
out of our control.
