Wild Ride!

Wild Ride

Bopping along on the river of life
Hands clinging tightly to the sides of our raft
Whilst we’re tossed and thrown by the strength of the rapids
In Full Force!
Oh for a moment of calm
Still water lapping quietly around the edges of our craft
Time to catch breath
Be warned it’s not for long
Before you exhale rapidly
As the force of the wild is unleashed once again
And the struggle begins
Heart beating, adrenaline coursing through veins
Taught with the effort to avoid capsize
Consternation and fear give way to concentration
Enabling us to steer
Our crazy course until finally
We find a safe spot to moor
And drop anchor in the safety of the bay!
