A tug on this string of fate,
signaled a decisive move.
Lessons of life’s taste,
flavors of chances on blissful moods.
Lifting the body up,
from abaca rolled in bundles.
A strength that promised to reach the top,
on an arduous journey, this vertical hurdle.
Hands burnt and blistered,
from frays of loosened spindles.
The zenith of the climb unraveled,
a blind belief defined principle.
