The Changing Tide

Things are beginning to look up,

A few false starts,

a couple of U-turns

and we are finally headed in the right direction.

We were often brash and  arrogant,

false in our assumptions

that our way was the only right way to go,

we got lost

as we struggled to right our leaky boat,

lashing out at the gods,

and often at each other,

until spent,

we sat back on our heels

and gave up the fight.

So let the sails loose,

wait on the wind and changing tide

to gently guide us home.
