In the General Flow of All Good Things

mud man

 

The water rose and I almost drowned

Over and again,

in so many ways, unforeseen

It rose and receded,

and with each ingress and egress,

I grew less aware of the strength that had replaced my weakness

Then it was,

at just the right time,

that I saw what had become of my position,

and my place in the general flow of all good things

There was mud in my pants,

and I may have shit myself a time or two in the process,

but I was standing

And hard as it was to move, I moved

One thick step after another.
