Random Observation/Comment #397: “You know what I do when I get mad/sad/unhappy? I stop being mad/sad/unhappy, and be awesome instead.” ~Barney Stinson
I haven’t written a poem in a very long time, but someone asked me why I’m never mad or really lost control of my emotions, and I felt the best way to answer was through an analogy and a poem.
Why don’t I get mad?
I am the riverbed, not the stone
The water flows over me and washes me constantly
I may erode, but it is only the surface
My body stays intact for its purpose
My foundation is rock
Each stone is an experience
There is water bringing life
… and causing death
It will always be
Don’t rush it or resist it
The river flows onward, but I stay consistent
Could your ripples change the current?
Or will those stones only splash and disrupt the flow
~See Lemons as a Riverbed
