The Wild Blue Yonder

At once an undercurrent of dread and exhilaration,
Dangling on an eroding cliff immediately after being freed from bondage,
Falling into tumultuous waters and realizing how lucky you are to have cleared the rocks,
Surfing speedily through the sea of mysterious potential.
Changes will always come to your panoramic landscape,
You can choose to let the tide take you, or paddle like hell to the shore,
But there are no guarantees.
The safety of the beach can be a mirage of sand,
The waves might have pushed you to do something more grand,
Than drowning in the muck of mediocrity.
