Life’s best metaphor is water
with its infinite possibilities.
You can be powerful
like a tsunami.
You can be beautiful
like a waterfall.
You can bring life to new places
You can be easy-going
like a river through the countryside,
flowing where ever you get pulled
never taking a straight path,
with twists and turns not always making sense.
Certain beauty brought on by the path you carve.
Occasional rough spots; it’s not always easy to keep going.
You just have to decide what mark you want to make.
A simple creek or a roaring river.
