Cascade of Reactions
We’re all caught up in the current
Of a cascade of reactions.
By default the torrent emanates downhill.
Rapid answers form a river
With a stream of violent waters.
We can redirect the flow by standing still.
When our actions are no longer
A reaction to the actions
Of all others, it will benefit us all.
We can even send the ripples
In a promising direction.
Rush towards The Upstream-Flowing Waterfall.
