"May you live every day of your life" - Jonathan Swift

I see the wave crash towards me
I feel the burst of air sent from its strength
I hear its power roaring,
telling me to retreat
Threatening to smother me
wanting to drown me
I cant go back
I must go forward
I need to press on
Through the swirling eddys,
Over the sand, slipping out from under my feet
The wave builds in strength as I stare,
Frozen with fear at this monstrosity
Its curling foam hisses
as it's arching form approaches
One step
One step more
one more step and we will meet.
Will the crashing wave win?
Or, will I be able to stand
Will I be able to face my greatest fear and survive?
