This poem stirred something deep within me…
I know my dream is like a river,
Ever changing as it flows.
I am just a vessel and I follow,
My dream wherever it goes.
Trying to learn from what’s behind me,
and never knowing what’s in store,
makes each day a constant battle,
just to stop from crashing on the shore.
I will sail my vessel tirelessly
till the river runs dry.
Like a bird upon the wind,
these waters are my sky.
I’ll never ever stand aside
and let the water slip away.
Because I know, what I put off yesterday,
I might never be able to do today.
So I’m not going to sit on the shore,
and say I’m satisfied.
I choose to chance upon the rapid
and dare to dance with every tide!
