The 54th Deadline: Peak

The 54th Deadline: Peak


The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right.


“Zeal is a volcano, the peak of which the grass of indecisiveness does not grow.” – Khalil Gibran

Climbing up to the peak is difficult. There is so much distance to cover. I am behind as it is. But I need to continue. I must. I cannot give up.

This is perhaps the most challenging aspect of it all. Part of me = tired. Part of me is just so weary about continuing.

I persist. I struggle as a result, but I persist.

There is so much that I want from life if I can reach the top. I want to stand up there and feel proud of who I am. All of these moments of suffering – I can balance it all out with success!

I have to make it all worth it.

Life is not always going to be perfect. But feeling trapped, feeling stuck is a weird feeling.

So I have to keep trying to climb and strive to reach that peak.

Long Ways Up

More than anything else, I cannot give in to the discouragement. Don’t let doubt have its way. Nonetheless, this is all part of the test.

The trial. The ultimate demonstration of willpower, or lack of it.

Will I be strong? Will I show resilience? Will I show tenacity?

I have to do this. I must. No matter what. I just have to get up to that peak! That metaphorical peak of where I need to reach!

Stop me, life. Try to stop me!

I will achieve my dreams. I will see this all through to the very end!

“Hope is my catalyst.” – Nhan Pham
