What will be?
Turquoise waves
Royally ripple
Of babies
Haunt us

We created
Slimy suds
Washing faces
Scrubbing strongly
Cannot conceal
Dirty dinosaurs

Times of bliss
Dropped like vases
All of a sudden
Black is blacker
White is yellowed
Love is selfish
Squeezed sand
Slips out
Like light

Looking around
Merely perception
Each their own
What do we share?

Skipping pebbles
What do they feel?
Bouncing on water
Toppling toward
Brighter fish
Glistening scales

Fearless chins
Lift to winds
Eyes squinted
One glance

Some succeed because they're destined to;
Most succeed because they're determined too

I love your unique perspective and the poem depicts well the sensitivity that seems innate in you. Congrats for getting published!
