Take the Discovery Adventure

A rush down the river
Bumping down the rapids
Flying over waterfalls
Free falling into nothing
Sometimes it feels like tipping over
Drowning in icy water
Under the boat of hope
Looking within seems a daunting task
But not to let pass
This earnest trip of exploration
To find the rhyme and the reason
For the decisions we make
The actions that we take
And the unexplainable feelings
That crop up every so often
The irrational outbursts
That seemingly come from nowhere
Irritations that grate, bearing old flesh
Not a medication or band aid will do
But diligent work to uncover the source
Riding the rocks
And floating the flats
Relishing the challenge
Of self-discovery
Making the most of getting acquainted
And learning to like
The depth of ourselves
The real, unmasked us
