New year, new start.
Another race is set ahead.
Dare to launch oneself into the race
Pulling all the energy, gathering courage.
Swim, strife, and shake the water,
But never stop on moving forward.
It will be tough, and sometimes rough.
But stay on track, and glide through.
Adversity is one’s companion,
One shall find strength and peace in battling and befriending it at once.
One will always find a calm water,
Somewhere, some time, during the journey. Keep on swimming.
For my nephew, Tristan, who swims like there’s no tomorrow.
