If I Swim

Puget Sound sunset

Wind touches water, memories touch my mind

I reminisce of what was then and wish for it now

I feel lonely, for I have only myself to lie with at night and share my thoughts

I long, and may push the wind so hard that I form the waves in the water

I continue my search but nearly drown in my waves

Yet, my hope I do not give up

For if I swim a break will appear in the storm of my own creating

Elizabeth Williams About Elizabeth Williams

I am a single mother and a full time student at Saint Martin's University majoring in Accounting. Most of my time is spent studying, parenting, doing house work and Tae Kwon Do with my six year old son.
I have been writing poetry as a creative outlet since my young teen years. I also performed ballet and jazz for ten years and played the trombone for 5 while growing up. My music tastes are very eclectic. I enjoy writing in free verse with metaphors. This blog is the first public show of my work.
I am also inspired to take amateur pictures of nature and family. Some of these are posted with some of my poetry. I hope to inspire people and touch them with my words.
