Shifting Shore

Shoreline, ever moving
ever changing
day in
day out

Feet on sandy ground, toes kissed by waves
of salty goodness
aware of something beautiful

Oh, the ebb, the flow
each day melts into the next
no two the same

And water can rise quick
for years I've been scared of it
will it subside
will today pull me under
knock me to my knees
pull me under?

Arms up, arms out
not gonna let me drown
not gonna!
I won't let myself drown
let myself down
I kneel
reach up, reach out
stand up

And I walk

along the shifting shore
the ripples chase me
I breathe

I find the air I need to breathe
and I'm
aware of all things beautiful
