Everything Is Cool When You're Part Of A Team

The water, the waves

The friends that turn into family,

The early morning practices,

The buffet pasta nights.

The water, the waves

The relaxing motion of the water pushing you forward,

The pre-lap stretch conversations that give a vent time,

The yards upon yards of wearing yourself thin.

The water, the waves

The team that is with you 24/7,

The team that will cheer you on during your worst and best,

The team that you call family.

The water, the waves

To some it may be a pool,

To others it is an escape from reality,

A way to truly express yourself and forget.
