Hill hiking. Image: Author’s own

Looking up a hill,

I feel overwhelmed.

Walking up that hill

one step at a time,

I feel invigorated.

With each step my muscles burn —

in a good way.

With each step,

I thank the Earth for those hills.

Hills that make me use my feet

and legs

and hips

and thighs.

Hills that make

my lungs expand.

Hills that make me

feel whole.

Hills that remind me

of how strong I am.
