It’s lonely at the top

What drove you to seek that height?
Were you fed up with the daily grind?
Or was it some quest or lust for light?
Did you get what you sought to find?

Did setback in love or deadly Thanatos
Rouse you to mount the perilous peak?
Was it some hurt, a matter of gain or loss?
Life’s seldom sunlit, on the whole bleak

Why on earth did you climb so high?
Was it to escape the rotten rat race?
Or was there more than meets the eye?
Did you find what you sought to chase?

You are the monarch of all you survey,
In breathless awe, my heart missed a beat
But it is always lonely at the top, they say
Though you hold the world at your feet
