It was only a week ago that
we were out here walking this path, the
firm steps we took yielding to nothing.

But how different things can get, how
much things change in the blink of an eye.

What was once unyielding, solid and
firm has now become a raging torrent,
shifting this way and that, threatening
to drown out every last bit of solid
footing that only last week we were
so certain would hold us up.

I abandon my foothold and let
the new current bring me to a new
spot, or maybe even the same spot.

Only God knows.

One thing is certain.
If I fight too much,
I will freeze and drown.
