I Made It

stormcoming

Before I leave these sandy shores
and set sail on the turbulent
seas of my path

I bury the weight of the past in the
sand and now I am ready to face
the seas and all its wrath

I have heard the same broken record
played off the tongues of doubt
for those words I would never
let see the light of day

I walk through the crowd to the nods
of shaking heads as my head is
held high knowing what I am
doing feels right and done
my way

Fierce raging storms and strong backwards
currents almost end my journey but
as long as my sail stands strong
I will fight to the end

My promise to myself that I would make it
is a sacred bond that I will not break
under the longest strands of time and
the most ferocious of winds

I see the sandy glistening shores of my
destination and I begin to reflect on
how far I have come as I am carried
in by the soft touch of
gentle waves

I smile laying on the sand basking in a
promise fulfilled as I close my tired
eyes and whisper to myself I made
it and the sun shows me its
approval as I shine under
its rays
