"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." -Henry Ford

I walk in
Tsunami of faces and bodies
Swim over me, push me to the floor
Of the ocean.
I breathe in
Seawater and people's feet
Gasp for air, choke on sand
Finally breathe with breaking lungs
I am not an ocean dweller
I can't go back
But I must, so I do
To the storm I can never ride

The author's comments:
Another one of those poems that you should take however you see fit. Personally, I wrote this about high school, which I think will be very relatable for many people. But I want people to take it however they feel it:)
