I was born of the water, for the water surely will take me to the soft sands of life or death,. As I touched the gentle rolling sea, with the soft spray of salt water drenching me, but not my profound thirst,. As my body surges past the line of departure, I hear screams in silence, as my cargo of warriors kneel and pray,.
Deep in the recesses of my soul, mind and heart, I hear commands shouting the responsibilities for the souls onboard,. I desperately look for that marker to my front that will safely be my guide into the roaring surf and then away from that hell incarnate,. I can hear and see the bursting bombs and projectiles ping the metal with the thud of target hit,.
March 11th Poets: Maritza Rivera, Jennifer Wallace, Michele Wolf
While I leave the soft foam beach, I can feel the heavy crushing powerful sea pouring over me where I stand,. At last the sea is calm as I turn toward the open waters, and again into the gentle rolling swells,.
