You will.

You will bend
Around such rocks
As activity & work
Or any chosen pursuit
– but will you bend
Like a stick or like water?

You will flow
Into and find the next pursuit
And inevitably keep busy
– but will you flow
Like tar or like water?

You will catch
In the winds of uncertainty
And buffet
In the breeze of unpredictability
– but will you be caught
Like a plastic bag
Or will you catch and mould and soar
Like the wing of the bird?

You will break
With the weights of
Events & time
– but will you break like the branch
Under too heavy a load
Or like the seed coming free
From the frond
And falling towards
The fertile
Earth?
