Crashing the Waves

March 22, 2009
The ocean beats to its own rhythm
The wind sings to its own tune
My hand moves sand in its own pattern
My eyes follow the glowing moon
My breath mimics my pounding heart

Birds cry as they fly by
Even crabs seem to have an agenda
Not me.
No. I’m ready to fight
Fight against the crashing waves

Be different from the pattern of life
Change the way the clouds move
Make the water rock with me
That’s how special I want to be

And so I stand
Ready to change the entire land
Fighting for a way to destroy the wind
To make the moon bow down
I will make a difference in what we can be

Nice, I like this. It shows seirious potential. I'm really suprised it's not in the magizine. It shows seirious potential and I like how it sort of draws a picture with the poem. Nice!
