Favorite Quote:
But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.
-1 Peter 3:15

Sip, Sip.
My last attempt at breath.
For I could not compete,
With the waves crashing above me.
Tugged by the current,
Like a stray piece of kelp.
All fight and breath gone,
I sunk down even farther--
To my Grave of Water.

The author's comments:
I have realized that my poem's are often very obvious and don't leave much room for different interpretations. With this one, I decided to be more vague. When you crtitique, please tell me what you think it means.
