there's something mesmerizing about
being able to sit on the pier
on a cool spring evening
and imagine the thousands of fish
that swim far below depths imaginable.
sometimes it takes a few heartaches to realize
that is far more important to sit and listen
to the crash of waves
than to focus on issues
that drag us beneath the riptide.
sometimes it takes false judgement
to realize that sharks may not
always be as vicious as they seem.
and as i sit upon the pier
overlooking the sun kissing the shoreline
that there are over 7 billion people
living on earth
and millions of creatures
all existing in perfect harmony
and as i lift my arms to grab hold
of the wind
i realize that there are planets that
have yet to be discovered
and land that has gone untreaded.
i finally realize that there is still so much to experience
and when i feel small
that my problems are even smaller
and in this remarkable word
there is nothing
to be sad about.
