A Force of Life

You know how it is when the moonlight glows more than the gold-filled sun and softly caresses your skin


It’s when the tide lowers to reveal beautiful pools of life hidden between entrenched boulders


It’s when you swim oceans in a day, that you come up gasping for air, wishing you’d have surfaced for a breather


It’s when you cover that same time and distance following the tide that you can catch your breath and keep your head above the water


It’s the small and steady strokes in time that will get you to the other side of your Olympic sized dream


It’s when you throw your head back and see a straight path behind you when you really swam a lifetime to get to where you are


It’s when gravity runs its course and you collapse under the weight of your own shoulders that you know it’s time to take a step back


It’s when nature is telling you to take it low but nurture is pushing you to rise back up


It’s when life’s ups and downs meet at a place called routine and you just tread through it to survive


But you know how it is when the moon's gravity pulls again and you come down from where you were up in arms


It’s when the tide lowers that you get to plant your feet into the ground and wade the waters


It’s when you get a chance to withdraw that you can reset before the tide rises again
