My breath comes deeper now, like the tides. Calm, regular. I find less hesitation.
The rhythmic melody colors me strange. Feeling completely natural is unfamiliar.
I could blame others for that, the status quo, the redundancy of lowered expectation, but I won’t.
From here I’ll just enjoy the salt in the air, the birds above and the promise of a new life. Fresh.
Footprints in the sand, the ocean calls me away from shore.
