Aquatic

The road to life is a river
and I am an aquatic being caught
in the powerful currents of
living, gloriously free.
So counter-intuitive is
the urge we carry within
that its strength surprises
me still: daily we attempt
to fling ourselves onto land;
try to grasp tools and construct
an impossibly smooth, straight
highway, complete with signs.
