My Lifelong Wish

Mon, 05/26/2014 - 00:30 -- tbritte


I watch them leap and twirl and dance.
I listen to them talk and laugh and sing.
I wish I could join them.
To swim alongside them in the endless cerulean blue.
To let the waters wash away my fears and limitations.
"It is not so hard," I hear them say.
"It could all be yours; if only you took the chance."
Why should I think them wrong?
Why should I wait any longer?
Not "It is too hard," but instead "Let us do more!"
Not "Someday I will," nay "Today I AM!"
And I will join them in the reflected sky.
And we will play and teach and learn.
And we will be as one, I and the rulers of the sea.
