Maxine Smith



Drowning in the air that I breathe,

Pulled below the waves of the sea


Brave the brutal, blood thirsty tide,

Battered and bruised, always I survive


Crashing waves, attempting my fate,

I’ll endure the unmerciful


Remaining strong, wait out the storm

Caved underneath a waterfall


Tide now smooth, calm and forgiving,

Beautiful colours rippling


A bright new journey has begun,

As I have the wings to the sun

                Quite charming. Hopeful for the New Year but Brexit will wash away all your joys, believe you me.
