Waves

Charge.
Crash.
Sink.
Surface.

Charge.

Despite the sun against your eyes and your hair caught up by the wind, unknown of what is beyond – run. Run because you can. Run because the water will welcome you. Run because after 365 days of running, it’s time to swim.

Crash.

Here’s the thing. You never really know what’s coming for you. An afternoon rain drowned your tiny sobs and you didn’t know if it’s because of happiness or desolation. You said too many goodbyes and spoke uncertain hellos. You took a bus round south to welcome summer with friends and bare feet, took a boat to another island below this long island with constants and adventure. You opened the second of the four doors with relief that you got out of the first and apprehension if you’ll get out of the second. You won some and lost some. You experienced heartbreak, ached, longed, cried, regretted.

Sink.

You cried again, and hurt, and smiled, and forgave. And forgave again, and smiled, and earned, and cried. And cried, and learned, and grew.

Surface.

When your battle with the waves is over, come up for air which your lungs rightfully deserve. Blink because the sun wants to see your eyes through your salty lashes. Breathe, tell your heart to beat. Because you merited more stories to keep and undone notebooks to fill up. You earned more jars of fireflies, so candles wouldn’t burn you anymore. The trail with 365 stones may have bruised you, but never forget that countless of times, it has made you stronger – strong enough to brave the waves. And the best thing about resurfacing? You know that you’re alive.
