Rough Seas

Sailing into a storm

requires guts.

Unavoidable rough

weather

is another thing

but when you can

sail around

and instead choose

to penetrate it head on,

you’re gutsy.

To try to navigate

uncharted seas

requires adventurousness.

The storms of life

are teachers…if you

learn not to repeat

a similar mistake

as the first time

through.

Even practice is worth

braving the swells.

If you capsize

and you’re all wet

eventually everything

dries out on this earth,

and you’re on your way again.
