*A Rip Tide*
by Amber Moonstone
Age Group: Adult
a current opposing other currents, producing violently disturbed water; esp., the strong, narrow flow of sea water that rushes seaward after incoming waves pile up on the shore
"A Rip Tide"
By Amber "V" Moonstone 7/16/08
Have you ever been caught up in a Rip Tide?
You can’t go anywhere,
No matter how fast you try to swim,
You just tread water and stay in the same place.
Life can seem as though you are caught up in a Rip Tide.
You work long hours, sleep less, and eat irregularly.
feeling as though you don’t seem to be getting ahead of expenses,
No matter how much you conserve, it doesn’t seem to make a difference.
Energy costs are skyrocketing in this country,
You sometimes decide between gas for your car
Or buying groceries for the week.
You can get quite depressed over this economy.
When you feel like you are treading water,
Sometimes just a glance at a loved one,
Or the sound of the birds greeting the morning sun,
Can trigger the release of your anxieties.
You must remain calm,
Go with the flow of the your rip tide,
Stop fighting the waves of anxiety,
And find a way to swim to a safe shore.
Safety is the key to happiness,
When you feel safe,
You begin to erase, all the negativity
that keeps you captive to your rip tidal wave.
Slow down, relax, make safe shore,
a priority for the next few weeks,
seeking calmness of mind, body, and spirit,
No sinking beneath the rip tides of your life.
