I took a walk by the ocean.
With every step I pounded my worries into the pavement.
I wanted to feel strong.
I watched the dragonflies dance around me, catching the wind with their wings, not a care in the world.
I saw kids playing on the beach. I hoped they would cling to their childhood as long as they could.
Don't let go.
I licked the saltiness from my lips.
Was it sweat, or was it tears?
I sat down on the rocks and let the water soothe me.
I held the smooth stones who have been here many more years than me.
I was reminded,
LIFE WILL GO ON.
