The Wave

They told her to ride the waves but she was too afraid to so she grabbed onto whatever she could see. She sensed the sinking. She sensed the cargo on her shoulders become tighter as she went lower. She screamed to no avail, she un-clenched some of the overbearing load she’d been carrying. They made a loud thudding sound as if enormous rocks have hit the bottom. She reached her hands behind her back attempting to loosen the cargo and they sank into the pit. She felt herself stop sinking. She looked down at everything she had released and noticed how small they looked now.

She found the surface and she was grateful for each new breath. She could see another wave forming from a distance, but this time she let herself float on the surface allowing it to carry her wherever she needed to be.

  3. Beautifully interpreted and metaphorically explained. Loosening the baggage enables us to be better version of ourselves.
