A mountain

Symbol of challenges and triumph.

A mountain

Consisting of what should have been said, what shouldn't have begun at all.

What once held you up

Now pushes you down.

Regrets flash before your tear-blurred vision.

The one massive avalanche that has been rushing down to--

CRUSH

You.

The calm before the storm;

The equivalent to that one bit of light you so foolishly thought held hope.

A straw

That slumped the camel.

A needle

That broke its back.

A mountain

Building each day

Pushing you down each and every step

The very meaning of

What you will never accomplish

And what you will go through in the hopeless effort.
