By Vallerie Vette
I used to be,
A lady of the sea.
But the waves were just too harsh for me.
So then I came ashore.
Sadly though, the dwellers there,
Seemed cold and heartless more, I swear.
Their apathy’s found everywhere.
So I sought the sea, once more.
And yet before I crossed the beach.
A giant lake instead I reached.
Its soothing waters I dared to breach.
A new adventure to explore.
It’s there I find,
My peace of mind.
And yet the past’s not far behind.
Its mercy I still implore.
Until then I find each day I wake,
A growing calm I gladly take.
Could I be a lady of the lake,
And home forevermore?
