Sometimes life is just treading water
sink or swim, wait a minute to decide
if the tide turns, you can almost walk
touching bottom or be thrown tumbling
ashore by violent waves, or sucked out
to deeper water by treacherous undertows
not to mention sharks, sting rays and eels
annoyed that you have invaded their territory.
