I’m floating in a pool that is infinitely vast.
Beneath me is everything.
When I was a child,
I witnessed things deep below that frightened me.
I learned to avoid things that are displeasing
but they aren’t always escapable.
Those situations are the worst,
but I’ve learned sometimes they are necessary.
Now that I’m older I don’t feel much of anything.
Sometimes I swim across the waters and find new wonders.
Most of the time I just float in place.
Change creates ripples all around me
but given enough time everything settles down.
I can fight the waves if I desire,
but I’ve surrendered to the water.
