Everything in moderation,

including moderation,

moderation of moderation

in this modern nation.

Yet, there is only now,

nothing to moderate

but now.

Everything is relative.

Nothing is static.

Dynamics, fluidity,

The water that washes over me.

The river that runs through us all.

The river that we all run through.

The falls ahead will make the rapids behind seem small.

And then the calm is evermore appreciated.

The more you fight the current

the more likely you are to drown.

Becoming weightless is the key.
