Ride The Waves Of Life

It begins with a swell
when all seems well
but then serenity dispels
and everything is changed…
What was once assured seems strange,
What was settled, now rearranged,
And more waves are still come
out gathering momentum
somewhere beyond the horizon…
But you can’t see that far
so focus on where you are
Because this wave is coming fast
now and there’s no way to get past it
so cast away your fears and take a breath
as it nears you, rise up and ride its breaking crest
because if you don’t, you won’t be left in peace
but ceaselessly pushed and pulled asunder
buffeted up, then dragged back under
by its current, on which you’re sent
to silent depths.
(Inspired by #DimpleVerse prompt ‘Of Waves’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
