The Waves

​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 

As trust wanes, only faith remains

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