"I Choose The Mountain" by Howard Simon

The low lands call 
I am tempted to answer 
They are offering me a free dwelling 
Without having to conquer

The massive mountain makes its move 
Beckoning me to ascend 
A much more difficult path 
To get up the slippery bend

I cannot choose both 
I have a choice to make 
I must be wise 
This will determine my fate

I choose, I choose the mountain 
With all its stress and strain 
Because only by climbing 
Can I rise above the plane

I choose the mountain 
And I will never stop climbing 
I choose the mountain 
And I shall forever be ascending

I choose the mountain
