Take me to your waters
I want my skin to feel the taste of freedom
To breathe in life in its holiest creation, joyfully
I need my palms to touch the colors in the wind
And my back to slowly kiss the fabric of the earth
Naked and unafraid, dinning in this skinny sun
My father, he made me fear the ocean
He said the waters wash away lives like soap
So my siblings and I feared the waters, unknown
But I grew up loving the water, scared to swim
It’s magical how I feel safe in your waters only
Maybe because you taste so much like hope ?
Out of darkness to witness and grow light
To feel this sun on my petals again, sun kissed
You’re my everything and your everything is me.
