Shell

Alone, tired, and empty she backs into her shell This is her home and safety a place she knows so well Outside the sky is darkened as she awaits the tears Soon the dam will break being one of many fears Once the walls come down there is nowhere to go Just sinking to the bottom as the rushing waters flow One day in the future her fears will be no more The under water current will drift her back to shore

I see this as a poem of hope as yes she does get pulled by the current as well do, but yet mabnages to get back to shore again as we so often do. Great imagery and a terrific flow to this read. Michael
