Almost There

Climbing up the last few feet of Snowdon Mountain, almost there

Driving to work, almost there

Weekend, almost there

Once there, once on the top of the mountain, at work, or at the weekend, you begin to look ahead to the next thing

Walking down the mountain, almost there

Going home, almost there

Monday, almost there

Such is life

Living an ‘almost there’ existence is par for the course

Or is it?

Does it have to be that way?

‘Almost there’ can be exhilarating or nerve racking

Either way our nervous system gets a jolt

So, we end up chasing ‘almost there’ until our last breath

How about switching to ‘there’, remove the ‘almost’

Repeat ‘there’, ‘there’, ‘there’

‘I am there’
