To clear the stale odor that surrounds me.
Something fresh and new.
To feel the spray of ocean mist upon my face.
Running along the beach, a touch of freedom lifting me up!
The warmth of the sun caresses my skin.
children's laughter among the surf, is a sweet sound of innocents.
Its soothing effect on my soul, breaks the chain of oppression
I run free.
Years slip away in a blur.
Moments in time are but a brief echo among the stars.
I stand alone.
Pounding waves match the pounding of my heart beat.
Excitement rushes through me.
A new awareness unfolds.
I hold my breath in anticipation.
I am not alone.
For he was always right there by my side.
