The waves lap against the shore
As I leisurely walk along.
Where it leads me, I cannot be sure
For the stretch of water and sand seems endless.
Barefooted, I squish along,
Gazing at the beauty of the vast body of water.
The cool liquid tickles my feet
Then rapidly recedes to where it came.
The waves never stop coming and going,
Though the summer sun is setting.
I stare off into forever
Wondering where it all ends.

this piece made me feel warm. It reminded me distinctly of summer and I could clearly see through the narrator's eyes. I have been reading some of your pieces, and I must say, thet just keep getting better. You are very, very good.

Thanks, I wrote this for an English assignment my freshman year of high school, which seems like forever ago! Ah, when I wrote this, I was thinking about what the rest of my life was going to be like. As a frosh, I had no clue what I would do, where I would go, who I would become. The world was one big mystery. But what baffled me even more was thinking that someone created all of this, this ocean- I have no idea where it begins or ends, it just disappears along the horizon. When the waves touch the sand on the beach, to me, it's like a taste of what life is. You're not really living until you are out in the deep end, while others are still just testing the waters at the shore. A lot was going through my mind when I wrote this. I am glad you got my point when you read it though. :)

P.S. That is awesome! You should keep writing and post more, I would love to see how your writing has evolved over the years. :) Thank you for all of your support of my work. People like you are the reason I am inspired to keep writing.

The poem its self is very visual. It definatly makes you think about where in your life are you going and how far will it take you. what was going through your thoughts when you wrote this peice?

P.S. Thanks for reading my poems I myself am surprised that people think they're so good since I only wrote them in the 5th grade. My writing has grown a lot since then.
