“Under Current”

THE YOUNG ONES ARE RUNNING OUT THE CLOSET

LIKE YOUNG SWIMMERS JUMPING OFF THE BOAT DOCKS

INTO THE CHERAW STATE PARK WATERS

TOTALLY UNAWARE

OF THE STRONG UNDER CURRENTS

BOLD, BLUNT, AND OUTSPOKEN

THEY ARE CONFIDENT THAT THEY CAN SWIM

IN DEEP, DARK WATERS

WITHOUT THE ADVICE OF THOSE

WHO HAVE LEARN TO FLOW WITH THE CURRENTS

BABIES, HAVE YOU NOTICED THE BODIES WASHING ASHORE?

LIFE WILL FLIP, TOSS, TWIRL, AND TWIST YOU

LIKE A SCHOOL OF FRY

IMAGINE BACK STROKING WITH NO LIFE JACKET

MY CHILD,

ACTIVELY

LISTEN TO YOUR ELDERS
