The ravings of the dreamers

Climb higher!
They dream,
Climb faster!
They scream.

Sweat drips
Your hands bleed,
Eyes blurring
Whilst they tell you to succeed.

Climb better!
They holler,
Climb stronger!
They scholar.

Skin raw
Your body a mess,
Lost feeling in your hands
Whilst they play chess.

Climb harder!
They shout,
Climb Smarter!
Blackout.

They are lost beneath the leaves
Unable to follow,
You climb up to the blinking sky
Whilst they are trapped, left to wallow.
