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.
