Reliving Danger


Sensing an ocean rushing at me, ready to knock me down and pull me under.
Mixing me with sand and shells, no way to tell which way is up or down.
A feeling of fear catching in my throat, yet knowing if I can only touch ground, I'll find myself right-side up.
Taking visions from my past, I can relive any moment I want to in my own time where there is no danger to myself.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
