Mount Elbrus


Having remained
hidden for so long
from the glare of
misunderstood attitudes

for those before him who
acknowledge and confront
not letting this define them
allows healing and progress

He succeeds in reaching
the mountain summit
then the saddle
that connects the next peak
and with necessary breath
he ascends
