Going against the waves as

They are crashing against my body

My mind is so hungry for the normalness of time

I move forward, and yet

The waves continue to push me back

And then to and fro, to and fro

Sometimes against my will and other times I

Just let it flow

Flow around me

Forgetting that I do have control

But alas I falter and I slide back into the

Strength of the waves and the crashing into the shore

I become more resilient as I grow and learn and

 Become strong against the waves that take over my body and

My mind

I become strong flowing with the waves to take me

Where I need to be and yet

I become wise as to which wave is taking from me and which way is giving to me

Pouring into my mind is the truth and ability to get through life

Good or bad

Simple or complicated

Joy or sadness

Flowing, flowing and flowing not fighting the waves.

Susie was thirteen at the time, in fact she just turned thirteen a week and a half after school dismissed for summer. She was very mature for her age; however, Laura Ann did not see this as mature, but rather saw it as being bossy. “Of course, since I am the oldest,” Susie stated, “I get to sit by the window.” Laura Ann started to pout, which she usually does, but then the friendly Airline Stewardess smiled at her and gave her coloring book and silver wings lapel
