The Sea – Author Veronica Thornton

I try to see the sea of possibilities

even though some things just seem to escape me

life flagrantly mocking me

while testing my resilient positivity

although like an earthquake it gets a little shaky

I refuse to allow any failures to break me

see the hurdles I had to overcome are different than some

yet compared to none

I see the sea of possibilities

can’t be drained by those ahead or behind me

because the sea I see is just for me

every step I take is another move I must make

until I’m as strong as a thousand ants

carrying tremendous weight

with the possibilities the opportunities I will take

the obstacle course never seems to end

causing me to lose some from the beginning

because they thought it was all about winning

Not really my friend

the trials and tribulations are not for your frustration

but to test your dedication

to the education of various life situations

that demonstrates your true determination

any obstacles you perceive

made you see any and all possibilities

even though some seem to escape me

I’m moving at a pace meant for me

and arrive at the end of the course with a smile on my face

knowing I went the whole course with love and grace

along with a few wise lessons that can’t be replaced

so while some don’t see the possibilities

they can’t see what I see

because that sea of possibilities was meant just for me.

About the Author

Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.

Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
