Going after the dream

by Joy Sy

Finally, I’m at sea
Amidst its churning water
Going farther away
the placid sandy shore

Towards the long ago
buried dream
Each moment unpredictable
unlike the million times before

Each cell shivering
in nervous anticipation
A blind ear to the
inner voice shouting
"Go no further more”

"Each cell shivering in nervous anticipation."--Nice line. It really gives the scene a good punch.
