Rapid Jumpers

We are all

Rolling in the water

Floating, flailing

Keeping our heads high

And our noses up

Making believe we are

Basking in oxygen

We bob on lazy rivers

Bursting forwards

Landing in soft streams

Of ignorant complacency

We are not yet jumpers of rapids

The rocks are too high

We cry we cannot see past them

Not even resting on our tiptoes

Yet we must learn

To run rapids

Our souls are stronger

Our unity is an unshakable boat

We must run the rapids

Leave our lazy waters behind

We have no time now

For laziness

We must run the rapids

Dare to be utterly submerged

In a world that we don’t understand

And offers no promise of stopping

For us to gain breath

Dare to surge

We have lost too many

Just sitting in quiet rivers

While the world beyond

Spins in chaos

We must run the rapids

For in the waters we will be changed

We will push forward

We can change our landscapes

And join the oceans of our brothers

"The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself, carry you away. It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion; it is the current which he puts forth which sweeps you along in his passion."
