I am in the middle of a river.
The chatter in my head seems silent now.
The din of rushing water is all I hear
I took this shortcut without a good reason.
I must stay alert and step carefully.
I will not let the torrent make me to stumble.
Is the trip I’m making worth the risk?
I have a lot to think about today.
I have been here before.
Will I repeat my past failures?
I could jump into to the river of imagination.
The lands of fantasy might be fun.
As I leave the river, I reflect carefully.
My steps seem to have a purpose now.
I am on the other side of dangerous thoughts.
