The Boat


I have become like that of a boat,
but I am one that refuses to float.

Kept upon dry land is where I’ll be.
Far from the waters of the sea.

No oar nor anchor in me you’ll find,
for no thought of her waters lay in my mind.

I’m the freest boat, happily incomplete,
and without the desire to be with the sea.

Hi, Brianna.  

It’s Brianna.  One day in the future, when you find yourself feeling as down in the dumps as you have been feeling lately, just remember one thing: No matter how terrible the rollercoaster in life feels, you can’t decide to get off. You have to sit through the ups, the downs, the twists, the turns, the loopiest of loops.  But you know what?  You’ll get used to it and you’ll get better.  So don’t ever forget that there is always someone there for you, ready to catch you when you fall.  Don’t ever forget that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  And most of all, don’t ever forget that the light.. might just be you.
