The Way Life Goes


The Way Life Goes

I am on a boat that is sturdy and impenetrable
Sailing across sea; going through the motion.
I am unclear on what to anticipate on this journey;
Unaware of where this vast blueness ends.
In an instance, the tide changes. Saltwater seeps in.
A wind blows in resistance. My course is altered.
All serenity is destroyed.
Given way by nature, I am no longer protected.
Disrupted by circumstances, I become vulnerable.
No! There is a solution. It is not over yet.
Life happens. Sometimes, uncontrollably.
Still, I have control of myself. I have power.
In life, no one is invincible.
In life, everyone is capable.
