Riding The Wave

We resist it.
Fight it.
Go ninja warrior on it.

The frightening aspects of the unknown.
Pain and loss of separation.
From what and who falls away:
Leaving us vulnerable.

"Everything was fine the way it was."
"Going smoothly."
"I don't want to do this."
"Or say good bye."

Some bury their head in their hands and cry.
Some pray.
Some ignore change whilst it sweeps them aside.
Some let go:

Riding the change like it is a wave.
Flowing out from all directions.
To destinations unknown.
Landscapes both foreign and inviting.

The truth is this:
There is no growth without change.
No appreciation for vistas unknown.
No consideration of what could be.

You can't fight it.
You can't stop it.
Better to ride the wave
Knowing it's going to be a bumpy ride.
