~ Braving the Currents ~
by The Poetess (SRP)

I gazed with skepticism wondering if I'd dare.
If I were to fail, would anyone care?
It was so vast and wide - this long forgotten sea!
But I dove straight and strong to save what was left of me.
I braved the deep end of a pretentious calm,
To find a treasure cradled in my palm
.

I like how you have a straight-forward approach. This one is a guiding light, and is very clean. Thanks for this, Poetess. What's in your palm; do you still have that treasure?
