The waves hurl themselves onto the rocky shore
As though on a suicide mission
I wonder what it would be like to feel those jagged edges biting me
Protruding through the breaking waves
Their strangled sounds strangely comfort me.
I dare to reach forth
One step at a time
A momentous awakening has come about this healing time.
And like how I come to the sand for serenity and to show respect,
myself, I blossom inside
feeling and breathing good health.
the racing thoughts in my mind
the strange understandings still in place
will eventually be wiped away
replaced with thoughts more socially acceptable and commonplace.
But I will not lose my vigour nor my ardour
Learning more of discovery, healing and self-respect
The waves continue to crash
My eyes divert from the scene as they capture human movement
Ah, there he is:
I almost thought he wouldn’t make it.
