Riptide - Poem by Thomas Hooker

Emotions rip past the jetty,
past the sandbar, out to the deep water,
leaving the sandy beach behind.

The world can break your heart
in so many ways, swim sideways,
parallel to shore, don't fight the riptide,
once you break the current, just float.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

When you're struggling in loss...stop trying to swim and float.
