The sand is a soft blanket on the bottom of my tough feet.
It reminds me of the memories that shaped my personality.
When I was a kid, everything was different:
my outlook on life so shallow,
my idea of a future so narrow.
Everything is different now,
I’m learning how,
to cope with my surroundings, or change them if
Which I very well may be, in a sea of opportunity,
where I’m not getting the support I need,
to persevere and succeed.
Can you help me straighten my backbone…
