Our lives being a journey
gave rise to the thought of what carries me through the day.
Most days I move along at a steady pace
rituals played out.
Deep waters make me more conscious of life
and it brings me to realize how it is love that carries me through the day.
Faith plays a part
I would not trust the boat that carries me over to the other side
of fear and uncertainty.
I continue to move towards that which I love to do
rather than do the expected responsible thing-
the mature adult thing
the money thing that is constantly being slammed at you
by way of media.
It is the child within me
the idea of trying something new
that carries me
to a shore of possibility.
But ultimately it is because
I love you
