Navigating through the river of life;
We are often faced with challenges;
Swimming along with the fishes (problems) in the river;
It seems a holy grail to swim through and overcome.
Often we resist going deeper into the water;
Comfortable in the shallow paths we enjoy;
Failing to flee from our comfort zone;
Without understanding that our comfort zone is a limiting zone.
Alas! We launch into the deep;
It however seems we’re gonna drown down there;
We begin to regret our adventure in the deep;
Unaware of the depth in the deep.
Our fears may cause us to swim back to shallowness;
But it seems there is a greater force holding us down;
By and by we get accustomed to the heavy waves of the deep;
And we begin to swim along as it takes us on an adventure.
The deep I talk about is the greater heights we all desire;
The shallow path is merely the tip of the iceberg;
Yet many prefer to abide and abound in shallowness;
When there are depths of depths available to them.
Launch as deep as you can go;
Deeper and deeper than you ever imagined;
When you begin to enjoy the bounties in the deep;
You’ll thank God you did not remain in shallowness.
My bit of advice is this;
Don’t let the tide of life overcome you;
Swim against the waves that want to pull you back;
And enjoy the bounties depth has to offer.
