I used to write poetry. I filled books and books with it. Today, it struck me that though I haven't written in years, I wanted to. Below is what flowed out as fast as I could log the words.
|Because today I really miss the ocean|
I am me.
Sometimes, I am me.
I am bold, I am fierce - You cannot stop me.
And sometimes, I am me.
I am afraid, I am a coward – I run.
Two halves of a whole
That isn’t quite defined
That perilously balances
The whole world on her shoulders
All the while, tossing it around
Like a beach ball in the surf
We are friends
We are enemies
I put all my trust in an unknown power
So that I don’t lose me to myself.
