Immortal Lessons

There is a hermit atop the mountain,
Who is said to have attained Truth,
And is willing to share their findings,
To those who struggle to follow them,
But when I scrambled to the summit,
Bloody, winded, and utterly spent,
Their corpse greeted me with a smile,
And whispered only silence.
