"Be exactly who you want to be, and love every second of it"


Watch out, the quicksand
Will swallow you whole
Toe by toe, finger by finger
Locking you under in the dark.

There you will stay,




Until the summer storms,
When the raindrops will
Slowly set you free.

Take a deep breath, quick
Because you’ll be back under,
Before you know it.
Toe by toe, finger by finger.

Say goodbye to the sun,
And fix your eyes to the sand.
Suck in the salt, the grain
I’ll watch you sink –

Toe by toe, finger by finger.

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by me overcoming and facing down temptations. I wrote about myself in the begining and how temptations can break you and really take over your life. Then as the poem continues, I talk about how I won't fall into the quicksand but the tempter with his temptations will. "Toe by toe, finger by finger"
