Mermaid in Sea

I will stand straight facing the high waves

I am not afraid

Of the salted waters to touch my wounds

Nor am I afraid

Of the midnight howls of the sea

So strong and still

I will be

With feet buried in the sand

Like a statue

I will stand straight facing the high waves

Ready for them to become wild

I will take a deep breath before I dive

And awaken the mermaid in me
