Waterfall

If you don’t face
What life brings
Head on

If you don’t stand
And let
The rushing waters
Fall over you
Feel the force
Of the impact
Let the pain of life
Change you

It will change you anyway

The way that rocks
Hiding under a waterfall
Are shaped anyway
Carved out
In peculiar shapes
By constant force

I think maybe
Those that hide
From pain
Are changed
In ways that feel half done
Changed in part
But never in whole

I think I see
Signs of that now
In others and
Sometimes in myself

I think it’s hard
To give in to pain
To give up control
Without giving up purpose

Hard to let pain
Take you over
And change you fully

Easier to hide
Turn away from pain
And be changed then
Only in part
