But when I breach the surface, there’s no telling how powerful I’ll be

I’ll glow brighter than the sun’s reflection on that ocean

The way it glimmers when the waves blow over

But I’m also as intense as those rolling waves, crashing to shore

Colliding with the world like there’s nothing to lose.

No bruises, but maybe scars

And they’ll fade away just as the tides change

And the gravitational pull of my loved ones is the moon to my ocean

They keep me going.

Keep me alive to survive and thrive,

To understand and learn


This poem is about: 
My family
