On the Ocean Waves

Echoing seas rise, 
I settle in for the eve
on a boat of memories.
I float parallel 
to the perilous breaking
of tides, crashing near the shore.
Unaware of risk,
I dream under starlit sky,
reflections of yesteryear. 
Joyful days of youth
sparkle on the ocean waves
embracing me with their glow.  
Rocked by endless sea,
each wave is a mystery
bearing life and aged secrets.
Divulging desires
and nature's rhythm of truth
into the depths of my soul.
Ev'ry starlit night,  
you will find me here.
I am free, one with the sea.

    Do go to Tae Kwon Do with him, let him see you have the same fears as he does starting something new BUT how wonderful it is to grow in something new and succeed [for you will both succeed!] it is very important for a person to KNOW they can TAKE a PUNCH..that its always best to stand up for their own beliefs and not to let fear have more power than it should!! BIG HUGS Light & Love [my son started at 7 at 14 I joined him at 16 he stopped at brown 3 I finished ;)]
