final 0neIt’s awful when
you hold despair tight
get slaps in the face
but can do nothing other
than hide your fright.

It’s terrible when
you fly with wings clipped
wish somehow to belong
but all doors are
hermetically sealed.

Life is an abysmal deep sea
sometimes calm and inviting
sometimes rough and hostile!

Set sail for this journey
and never give up.

This sea is all yours
awaiting to be explored
and conquered.
