~The Flow of Certainty~


Thank God

            for decisive moments.

The few times

            when you don’t question

            or barter options between yourself.

You stumble on a moment

            and the choice seems already made

                                    and you say Yes.


You’re all in.

A gut fully trusted.
Your intuition feels the depth

            and dives in headfirst.
No toe dips
            sample sips
                        travel tips

                                    or prewritten scripts.
                                    Just Yes.


It is not a matter of assumption either.
No leap of blind faith.

            No hunch to crunch.

                        No information for speculation.

Just a continuation in the flow of certainty

            like already being on the right path

            before realizing
            there are other options to choose.
Don’t question it.
Indecision after committing to the wave

            will only cause it to crash over you.

You’re already on one long ride,

                                    on the surge of Yes.


The only thing that lingers

            is how open ended the answer will be

            of where it goes from here.

Keep it open.

You’ve already jumped.
Can’t close the parachute now.
You have an idea of where things might land,

            but you never really know
                        how long you can stay certain

                                    in the moment.


And there lies the paradox            

            in the flow of certainty
 As it loops back

            into the glorious opportunity of uncertainty.

Waiting on your next decision

            to commit to the moment.

                                    with a decisive Yes.
