on the edge of something meaningful

i can feel everything all at once,
she said
i am scared and aware of
this world so big, so wonderful,
so tumultuous, so alive

pent up breath,
always
perched on the cusp
because the motion is dizzying
no matter how tight you hang on

the only obstacles are the ones we
allow
but no one want wants to admit that
and fewer will learn that they, too
can move forward

We are in a switfly flowing river.

We dream of shaping,
redirecting the currents.

We must learn to swim,
before we are dashed against the rocks.

Moving forward, relaxing, enjoying the currents,
we take notice of the scenery.

Stopping, trying to change the flows,
and it is only a brutal reminder
that we are powerless.
