Waves of Life

Every day awakening to the realization
that I am in the beginning of a new dawn.
A place where the pain, anger and frustration
ride the waves out to sea.
A place where the wave comes crashing to shore,
washing away the negative flow of my past life.
In its place it leaves healing that ebbs and flows freely.
