Life energy water encompasses my body,
I feel its positivity healing my rotten body and soul
and I am reborn.
Creek waters trickle over rocks,
smoothing the jagged surface,
teaching us even the hardest stone
can be changed by cool flowing
love, hope and purpose.
Now, I’m floating in a sea
thick with cooperation, trust, hope, regeneration, invigoration.
The thunder cracks,
the rain pours,
the lightening bolt strikes,
giving renewed energy,
bringing the walking dead back to life.
I begin moving my feet in a different direction,
now that I’ve seen the light.
When your just trying to fit in,
with storm clouds over head,
survival is a struggle,
unless you teach yourself to swim,
but the surf is nutritious,
when people are vicious,
and sea gulls see all,
even those who can barely crawl,
so I pull myself up time and time again,
and drift in the ocean breeze.
The wind hits my skin and my body sucks up its strength and flexibility,
the ability to go around road block the size of yesterdays,
up side streets and down alleyways,
to continue past your destination,
right there where land meets sea,
drifting, floating, constantly rolling,
that’s where you’ll find me,
and the spirit of nature guides me,
soaring above, blind searching below,
life is just a matter of perspective,
whether you’re riding a wave,
or caught in the undertow.
Have patience with the journey,
I tell myself,
for every experience is a part of life,
the love, the joy,
the pain, the strife.
Then, maybe a true and honest life will come my way,
proving that I’m here to stay.
