Peaceful Piece

I felt a cleansing coming over me,


Release of a forgotten roar.


Where I arrived seemed familiar,


But swimming was I no more.

Ashore was not climactic,


Nor congratulatory.


I imagined something more boastful,


As it held the piece long sought for.


My first breath became pierced,


By welcomed drops of rain.


I smiled, then laughed,


At all I gained through pain.

I turned to admire the crashing waves of sea,


Waving goodbye,


And thanking them,

For simply teaching me.



Surviving wicked storms,


And treacherous beasts,


I would do it all again,


To reach this newfound peace.

An unannounced arrival,


Acceptance, I’ve heard it called,


Only meets you face-to-face


If you allow yourself to fall.

So instead of fearing drowning,


Or a violent attack,


What if something more terrifying happens?

Such as happiness.


How about that?
