My Hiking Trip

Youth Sections
"The Braves Arise "

It all started at the bottom
with a thought that I would come down halfway.
With a feeling of excitement
and a moment of open mouths.

I start my journey to the top and
won’t stop until I reach my goal.
I promise myself to finish what I start,
thoughts burst into my mind like bulletins

How windy is it up there?
How does it look?
Is it cold?
I am half way there and am pumped

I gaze at the flowers’ beauty and the grass
as in my mind, I thank my parents
for challenging me to hike.
I am almost there and nothing will stop me.

I inflate with excitement as I get closer with each step.
Finally I reach the top right after Arman and get so happy.
It’s nothing like I expected and
the song “We are the champions” is stuck in my head

The way down was easy
Once I got down I went to the campsite, to my tent
There I lay sleeping, dreaming
A wonderful dream of donuts
