In-Between

I was born in the ocean
Baby
Dripping wet
Every inch
Swam with fishes
Sharks with teeth
Felt the cool water
Touched the reef

I have wandered the desert
Child
Sand from sea
Waking sleep
Lucid dreams
40 days
Underneath
Sun and heat

I have felt the flames lick
Son
At my feet
As father set fire to sand
Watched it turn clear beneath
Felt legs go weak
Dropped down
To my knees

I have climbed the mountains
Brother
Walked the peaks
Amongst the trees
Heard them speak
Ancient verses
Broken
Incomplete

Now I watch with eyes wide
Man
Standing somewhere
In-between
Finally seeing clearly
And being seen
Speaking my truth
And listening

  1. I love the use of the elements here. Nature is so beautiful and you’ve employed them wonderfully. I’ve recently developed a passion for learning about sharks, so I particularly enjoyed that line! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! I so thoroughly love nature and all the pieces of it that compose my life. I have always had a love of sealife… My childhood dream was to become a marine biologist when I grew up – maybe some day.

      1. Ah mine’s the same! I’ve always wanted to be a marine biologist, and I intend to do a course this summer! It’s great to find something else that we have in common.
