Favorite Quote:
"Always do what you are afraid to do." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

As the boat slowly rocks,
I untie my shoes and take off my socks.
The sun shines on the sea,
As it did just yesterday for me.
I stand up on the bow and hold onto the railings,
My dad dives into the cold ocean sea whaling.

My family yells jump in,
As the cool wind hits my skin.
I jump in real fast,
And I don’t think about what happened last.
My eyes avert to the sky,
As I hope this day won’t go by.

I wrote this poem a while ago, but I like it because it brings back good family memories.
