I see it coming,
bigger than any I have seen before.
Can I do this?
Will it engulf me?
I should walk away.
There will be more after all.
And then I feel it,
their eyes- watching and waiting.
Waiting for me to fail,
waiting so they can gloat,
waiting to say 'knew she didn't have it in her'.
There is no going back.
Those eyes would haunt me forever.
There's only one way- the way into the sea.
The waves are my friends,
ready to take me to new heights.
I just have to rise up to them.
And I can.
