SORRY (Puzzle Poetry)

Once
A climber used numbered stones
To reach the pate of a mountain
He neglected the unbypassable 1
And realized 4 was closer than 2
…so used it
Then he stepped on 2
…to get to 5
But slipped onto 3
Determined,
…he stretched and jumped on 7
…slipped and forced himself on 6
He then comfortably climbed onto 8
…and then onto 9
But somehow slipped
…only to end up on the 1 he neglected
Some word builder used his steps
…to build an art in a puzzle
…by going through an unending cycle
…from beginning to end
He who follows can easily unpuzzle

I
Flames hurricane battles A which wood
Games but cruel Is a working power at unmatched
Fight cobra sports A which a for worm
Bright but unfit Is an wanting power to shine
In admit fault I my burdening in your head wreck a
Neck a heavier With talent your than
Sorry I back So take worry
…your with a

II
Your gave a I you too soul strong for grasp
At a too And spirit which hot burned even gasp your
Own you soul Sorry, naive your growing
Own that greatness One saw wanted and to
Ability thinking his Without of and capability  strength’s
Sorry I back So take worry
…your with a

III
Power pray growth I your you finds a
Shower than to Greater mine you help
Of the you’ve In life dreamt always
Off putting strength’s Without your light
Fix pray a I for fitter mighty to help you
Two this breaks As one a into hurting
Sorry to your All kill
…with worry a

IV
While will over Frowns take for smiles a
While will over Anger take thinking right for a
While will over Hatred take for love a
A we’ve on Because traveled road a longer than mile
The all I In this, you hope rise above wrong
…strong live life To the the of revered
Sorry I away As take worry
… your with a

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
