Lake Michigan - Poem by Nia Schexnider

I played in your arms as a child,
Your cool waters, soft and mild.
You hugged me, and loved me
and showed me the way.
You smiled and told me,
there is always a way.
I thought I knew you,
and you knew me,
but I asked, 'Why can't anybody else see? '
A sad mistake,
and a bad path to take.
Because I knew, you knew me.
