Keep Your Head Up

October 6, 2020



When I was a child, I used to stand on the edge of the beach,
fixing my eyes on the waves at end of my vision.
The tide would lap over my bare toes, and I'd giggle and shriek
as the shifting sand brought the illusion of movement.

I suppose my youthful memories can serve as a reminder,
a lesson in the form of a joyous metaphor.

When the ground seems to fall away,
and hope is being swept so far out of reach,
keep your thoughts on the road ahead of you,
but learn to find the laughter in the midst of the madness.
A good song to listen to that's similar to the last line is Madness by Hunter Hayes. He also has a super calming song called Still (not Still Fallin', although that one's good too). :)

    This is so pretty! Now I'm imagining you standing on the shore of the Pacific Ocean looking out to sea.
    Re: haha, no problem. It would be fun if we could meet someday, somewhere in the future. I think we'd be pretty good friends.

    subject choice form: i have to choose my subjects for next year depending on what pathways i want to take in further years
    summative: contributes towards final semester grade
    formative: doesn't contribute towards final semester grade
    cumulative: no idea, is that a cloud? lol

    this is so calming and beautiful... it reminds me of Lake Superior (how Minnesotan is that, thinking of a giant lake instead of the ocean??). I really love this <3

    Re: Hey, thank you so much! I haven't thought much about the world that my story was set in, I just kind of wrote whatever came into my head, but I might try writing some more to see what happens. Thanks for the tip on how to reply to comments(I think I did this right...)
    I am fairly new to this site but I'm loving it! Everyone is really kind and supportive.
