Like A Flowing River

Like a flowing river

Life continues moving

Eddy out to linger in calmer waters

The currents will eventually shift you about

Swallow you up and spit you out

If you are passive

It will take you where it will

With no consideration for you–at all

Hit the rapids deliberately and with might

In order to stay afloat

Embrace your vulnerabilities

Hopefully you’ll stay upright

–but even still–

The river will take you where it will

Laugh at the absurdities

With joy and humility

Blast through the waves

Enjoy the madness of it all!
