It’s hard…

As the waves crash
Against the rocks,
Pearls of mist
Gently kiss my ankles…
I spread my arms,
Featherless wings.
Before the ocean
I feel so tiny…
The salty invitation
Tickles my tongue.
Goosebumps cover
My skin
Am I ready?
Am I really ready?
Yet again I wonder
Yet again I hesitate,
Because
Sometimes it’s hard
To know the difference
Between
Willing to die,
And wanting to
Live.

  1. Sometimes even, it’s not being willing
    To die or to live, it’s just wanting, praying
    For the suffering to finally end
    So we don’t have to pretend
    Anymore

    This brings me back to high school, I’m not as good as you but you inspire me! Beautiful poem. ❤
