-Brooks Robinson

I am washing away in the midst of a storm.

Drowning in a sea of crystal tears

Slowly being suffered from clean and fresh air.

Just as any girl I begin to mourn

Trying gracefully to steer

Through a fighting wind with care.

You parting as if it were a norm

Even though we had common years

I begin to think they were thin and bare.

You, in my eyes seemed to transform

But in spite of my fears

My love for you became aware

Your affection was only born

When looking for acceptance from your peers

You left with not even a fight, because you never cared.

When you wonder if you've made the right decisions don't think they're mistakes they were just hard things to do. Never regret.
