I wrote this a couple of years ago and kept it in my Evernote. I think of it often, as being compared to a River has help me navigate myself. I can help others experience me without fear or damage. I read this now and see errors. I see missing words and thoughts. I want to quiet that criticism, because this is where I started and I want to document it all. How will I know where I have improved, unless im willing to show up and brave it all?
In summer I am full and boistoruous with strong currents, cool and refreshing
In winter I am a light stream with a melodic song as my gift
I am ever changing and the only consistency is my inconsistent nature
When the world tries to stop me I thunderously carve rock into a breathtaking waterfall
If you navigate me well I can be serene and calm
Misunderstand or misjudge me and I can carry you away swiftly with rapids of destruction.
