THE ASCENTby Mike Visaggio COPYRIGHT 2009Give me ire, give me painAnd all those things I thought that I would never see againGive me love, don't give me hate insaneShelter me from those who claim to be my fellow-men'Cause I'm tired and hungry and looking for a place to staySeemingly insurmountable mountains loom just aheadOh just ahead, they loom just aheadIn my next dayGive me blood, give me sweatAnd mingle them with tiny droplets of my tearsGive me friends who are enemies as yetI'll take from them my courage as the summit nears'Cause I'm beat and feel dejected, the mountain grows as higher I climbAnd it seems that I many not claim a victory over anyoneOr anything at any placeAt any timeGive me patience to persevereTo keep inside a kindling burning roaring fireI will surely reach the crestBecause my will has striven to match this great desireI'm looking down again, I see the verdant valley belowAnd I know that at the summit, yes I know that at the summitI will find the book, a book about a manI'll find the book that will tell me like nothing, nothing else canYes I'll read the book, I'll find out what was the master planYes I'll read the book, I know it will tell meWhat I must know
