angle of vision

the hills that we see lead to greater heights
and when we reach them there's another hill
that we must climb if we have yet the will
to struggle through the warmest days and nights
we never announce the secret fears and frights
that we'll be ground so finely by the mill
instead we hope that what we learn won't kill
and that we'll have the answer dead to rights
though ill and tired we will not say we're weak
but pull our feet up step by weary step
unto the places where we have hoped to be
there's a reward when on the highest peak
we find a way to revive or hope and pep
when from a distance we observe the sea
