The Mysteries Behind Its Ebbs and Flows

By Ndaba Sibanda

The Mysteries Behind Its Ebbs and Flows

a deep, diverse and dynamic gift,
delicate, it is full of ebbs and flows,

bravo, at times our life flows toward
our dreams, desires and ambitions,

so we sing in celebration, we toast
to the fulfillment of our missions,

we rejoice when it croons with us,
we wonder and wither when the tide

of life flows away from our dreams,
desires, endeavors and intentions,

more often than not, when we struggle
against the current, we seem to lose sight

of the fact that life is neither static
nor linear, it is dynamic and erratic,

we struggle to accept that life has
its natural cycles, ups and downs,
it has its natural ebbs and flows,
its phases, seasons, lessons, reasons,

during periods when it flows, we tend
to feel its meaning, movement, rhythm,

when it ebbs, its cadence seems to slip off,
we struggle to get a grip on its tempo, tactic,

yet it surely teaches us to navigate its ebbs
and flows with a measure of stability and hope,

with a degree of grace, positivity and flexibility,
it teaches us to be grateful, graceful, thoughtful,

to appreciate and accept its dynamism,
to value fun, favors, logs, intentional love
