With The Wind - Poem by Rob Knetsch

i huff and i puff
against the wind
step by step
leaning forward

pushing against
this invisible wall
its brutal force
takes my breath away

my energy is drained
by this massive ordeal
this ruthless battle
takes all i got

i am giving up
i am caving in
i am letting go
yes i surrender

i accept its domination fully
and allow it to embrace me
to lift me up and guide me
as i take off and fly away

    Before you reach the zenith of your career, you encounter first the power of the rugged wind, the wind of trials and hardship until you savor the bliss in cloud nine....a perfect 10+++
