The Stairs

As I looked out past the trees and houses 

Into the vast ocean,

While sweat clung to my body from 

the summer swelter-

I thanked God for every instance that had 

Pushed me so far out of my comfort zone

That forced my tiny heart to the coast.

I had never truly been myself until 

That ocean breeze woke me up.
