Steady Lungs

I am tempted
when you test me
with these trials
and tribulations
to succumb
beneath the turbulent waves
and wash away
to the depths
of an ocean
that cannot be fathomed,
but I know
that the goal
is in reach,
and if I just keep
taking one more step
I will breach
the surface
to breathe
the beauty
of your divinity
and grace
into these lungs
that are ready
to seize
such a blissful taste.

Scott Thomas Outlar spends the hours flowing and fluxing with the ever-changing currents of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over life's existential nature. Singing and dancing are also involved in the process.
