Can Life be like a Waterfall?

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Today I am dabbling in poetry! I found this picture and decided I’d put my thoughts into words.

 

Can life be like a waterfall?
The stream is smooth and easy to navigate
Then you hit the rapids.

Can life be like a waterfall?
Life is smooth and easy to navigate 
Until there’s a pothole in your way.

The rapids are strong the rocks are sharp
And life gets harder to navigate.

You try to stand tall and fight the stream
but then you hit the waterfall.

You fall with the water afraid to hit the rocks at bottom
But when you open your eyes the pool is sparkling

Life is strong and smooth again
Life is like a waterfall
No rapids
No sharp rocks

Hang on a little longer 
You’ll fight through your waterfall

    Lovely photograph. Life is like a waterfall when you think about it. No matter what, you have to take each day as it comes, even if there are troubles, and we always come out the other side, if a little shaken and knocked about. Food for thought your poem, I liked it 🙂
