The ebb and flow of life’s many tides
May at times push you down or aside.
While often difficult to catch a breath,
Lessons can be learned when under the depths.
Although, easy to give in and simply float,
Would life, then, be anything worth taking note?
Let honesty be your eyes and love your truth,
This is what separates a man from his youth.
Remember, going along with the current,
Is not always what is best for the spirit.
When you reach the shore, exhausted and tried,
Rejoice that you were stronger than the tide.
