Swimming upstream

Do you ever feel like your swimming against the current, like the tide is constantly knocking you back, away from solid ground? And no matter how much you fight, you're never completely in control?

I feel that life is a constant struggle, where nothing ever comes easily. We are forced into this battle if only to stay afloat, being persistently tested by the unforgiving sea that is our circumstances.

It is relentless, cold and harsh. Indiscriminate to all. And so we fight on. We keep pushing against this force that shall never subside. Simply because we know what will become of us if we falter, if we fail, if only for a moment.

In the end the current always wins.

Till next we meet,
Paul

    paul says:
    To not is to live in ignorance, never asking the question why.

    bad_intelligence said says:

    The thing with the current is, you only notice it when it is working against you... Sometimes you will be swimming down stream, but you take that for granted and enjoy the ride...

    Swim through the current when it goes against you, but realise when it stops pushing you back, that it can also push you forward...
