you can give in to it

succumb

like it wants you to

itd be so easy too

its pull is relentless

is more insistent than Earth

giving in would be as simple

as letting go of everything

letting everything grab on

carry you downstream with it

but what

I ask you, what

would be the fun in that

to go with the flow is fine

on roller-coasters

and lazy-river-rides

but this is LIFE!

is best lived when we

Salmon-like

struggle against the torrent

to our triumph

ere we end
