Hiking Affirmation

Written in verse, but more of an affirmation than a poem.

Why do i like to hike?
Physical exercise,
The view,
Mental release.
Sometimes it’s more about the feeling
than the beauty.
Sometimes the only way to experience the beauty
Is to get to it on foot.
Sometimes the beauty is more magnificent
when you have to work to get there.
Hiking is a release.
Hiking is a tool.
Hiking is a journey.
Hiking is a way to feed my soul.
Hiking touches my soul.
Hiking keeps me human.
Hiking reminds me that
there is more to life than
my little piece of the world.
