The Wave

I step out of my comfort zone and wade into the vast unknown
The illusion of control is still intact
With each step self confidence wanes
The deeper I venture, the less I am sure of, and the more I have to rely on trust
With predictible expectation, I brace myself for the inevitable
They come in a relentless series, one after the next, trying to draw me in
I push back and the results are disastrous
I am thrown and pummeled
The force is overwhelming, but I am stubborn
I fight back
It’s comical at first, but the more I struggle the more tired I become
When I resist, it persists
With my resolve weakened, fear creeps in
I begin to question my strength
I relax
I feel my buoyancy and float
The swell surges again
This time I let the current take me
I am no longer opposing this incredible energy
I know I am not in control…

…But I have a choice: to fight, or to ride the wave until my feet are planted firmly on the shore
