Letting Go

Written by: Caleah Buil

The light of the sun was blinding
       And I lie down on the sand
The heat was blazing 
         Made me wish I had a fan
I close my eyes and listen
      Hearing the roars of the ocean
Kids screaming and playing
         While I feel my own emotion
Everything feels frozen in place 
      Like it can last forever
But tomorrow I'll be gone with no trace
        All my ties to this spot severed
Peace floods through me here
           Not a touch of fear
It will all be fine
          As long as I stay on this pier
When I open my eyes it all seems different
        The world has changed
I realized its because I listened
             And let go of the pain
