A Desert Monument

A perpetual fixer upper

so much to be learned

diligent in my efforts

knowledge to be earned

Racing with others

a long way to the top

victory in sight

determined not to stop

Sun reflecting off the cross

like a diamond in the rough

a colorful reminder of a place

to go when things are tough

Ancient writing on the wall

difficult to decipher

looking around

for an advisor

Getting hot

time to take my leave

admiring one more time

wiping sweat with my sleeve

Standing alone

a monument to another time

leaving impressions

that last a lifetime
