Watching Water

I have been watching the water…and thinking.

It is still and smooth most of the time, with a ripple here and there.

Sometimes a line of waves forms and changes everything.

That’s how my life is right now.

Waves keep rolling across my smooth life.


I am in control of only my own buoyancy.

The water acts and I react.

Will I float?  Will I swim with the waves or against them?

Will I rise and fall with the water

or let gravity win and go under?

I do not know what the water will do


but I know what I will do.

I will stay afloat

Because I am a survivor.

I choose to stay up

no matter the water.
