Rapids

I can hear the rapids
before we take the turn.

My heart beats faster
as the calm waters disappear.

The river narrows;
rugged rocks draw near.

This is what we’ve been waiting for.

Water splashing;
we listen to the guide,
eventually arriving
on the other side.

Back to calm waters.

Where my heart slows and all can rest.
Feeling triumphant though soaking wet.

We faced our challenge and we overcame
a lot like life, so isn’t it a shame,
when we see resistance and call it a foe,
maybe it’s just life helping us grow.
