When I Was a Little Girl

Amaya Griffin, ’27

When I was a little girl..
I was terrified by the water at the beach
I would scream and chase the birds at the seaside.

Anything to avoid facing my fear.
Anything to avoid stepping into the unknown waters.

Around that time my brothers picked me up..
walked into the water and let me float.

And I saw.. how lovely and stress free it was..

That’s how it was meeting you.
I was that little girl who was scared of the water.

Crying every time I thought of touching it..
Shaking because it was new.

I cried and thought it’ll hurt me
He’ll hurt me..
I’ll love him and get hurt.

But i had to swim in the waters
to learn who i was afraid of

I didn’t drown
I didn’t sink
struggle or cry..

I floated..
and in your arms..

I have never felt so
and stress free..
