Message from Writer

"You are gonna get judged about anything you do now. Accept who you are and keep moving forward." - Iann Dior

Hey readers and writers! My name's Nathan, and I am currently living in Fairfield, Connecticut, United States. I enjoy playing tons of sports, reading some good stories, writing stories of my own, and studying to become a marine biologist. I humbly ask you guys to read some of my pieces, and if you do I will try to read your work and give comments.If you want a review from me, just ask!
I recommend checking out wintermagic. She has some really good pieces and loves to give reviews. Make sure to check out ThunderBird(my twin brother IRL), Rohan's Defender, Ash DoodleNinja, and Stone of Jade. They are really talented writers!

FREE WRITING

Sometimes, I feel like a buoy.
Bobbing, alone, unheard, 
Unseen, and overlooked,
The gradual pounding of the waves
Wears me down,
Changes me,
Reshapes me.
Then I remember
I am not alone.
Quite the contrary.
The waves surround me,
Pushing me to my limits,
Molding me,
Guiding me.
Sometimes, I am something you want to try and reach,
To stretch for, to show your accomplishment.
Sometimes I am something you avoid,
Because as innocent as I seem sometimes,
There is a sharp, rusty barb covered somewhere in that murk
That surrounds me.
Sometimes I stand out, like a lighthouse beam.
I am noticed.
Sometimes I blend in, like I disappear into the rolling fog.
That surrounds me in mystery until I am everything and nothing at once.
Sometimes I am withdrawn, out in my own world, my own depth,
Where only Mother Earth can reach me.
Sometimes I am washed up, stuck in place, nowhere else to go.
But not for long.
The waves come back.
They always do.
They pick me up and carry me back to their palace, 
clad in sky blue and dark green.
They wrap me up safely,
 tugging me back,
 like an urgent child 
with something he needs to do.
And now, as I look out at that buoy, a stark guard against a army of waves,
I am reminded of me.
Not because I am secluded, 
But because whatever happens,
Someone
Or something
Is there to tow me back out again.
