  • Through water we see clearer
    white shell sand under foot

    under water the world seems farther away
    rippling waves tug at thoughts

    my hair is unleashed
    my voice is silenced

    floating under water
    we pretend we are the world
    we pretend we are weightless

    who says we cannot drift
    who says we cannot let the tide take us
    through water

    let it lead you
