Let not this ocean consume me,
let me know of its tides, fathom its depths,
let me ride out its storms, sail on its seas,
let the stars and moon guide me safely to shore,
let me wiggle my toes in the sand.
Let me feel the wind in my hair, the rain on my face,
let the sun beat in my heart filling my soul.
Let me love life.
M (thanks M) at Mindlovemisery asks if we are an optimist, pessimist or realist. I consider myself to be a realist, but realism is often burdensome, dampening the spirit and destroying hope, so I self-medicate with a constant dose of optimism and for the most part remain happy, happy, happy! (I do so love life!)
