I was inspired to write this after going for a hike with my family to Stone Face. The sense of adventuere is one of the most alive sensations you can feel.

They grabbed their curiosity and flung it on their backs,
Ran for the hills with only pillows and snacks,
 
Rested when the sun began to set,
Continued when he rose,
Fleeted the tainted city of Illusions,
Balanced by broken fingers and toes,
 
They emptied their hearts of fear and fear of fear,
Sang with the birds and ate with the deer.
 
Scaled across cliffs,
Broke some bones,
Climbed the hills,
Named the stones,
 
They put their differences aside to conquer the wild,
Yearned for something more daring than mild.
 
Blew puffs of breath in the chilly air,
Stared in wonderment at the stars,
Splashed beneath a waterfall,
Compared their bruises and scars.
 
They grabbed their curiosity and flung it on their backs,
Ran for the hills with only pillows and snacks,
 
They separated amongst the world to proclaim what
was found, Leaving only whispers in caves and footprints on the ground.
