Sea Glass

To be tumbled and ground,

       crushed beneath the waves.

Rising to the surface once all your sharp edges

           are smooth and round.

In the beginning – nothing more than a piece of


Potential to hurt others – all they do is throw

                 you in the trash.

 Mother nature takes you into her tides,

decades of tossing and tumbling is what’s

    needed to polish you just right.

  The slick transparency it held before,

         turns to a frosted wonder.

One can help but marvel at the journey and

       turmoil it must have went under.

The appreciation from some runs so deep,

     that when they go to the shores –

                  it’s all they seek.

Something that once mattered nothing before,

      after being tumbled and ground,

rose up to share its beauty from the depths of

                 the ocean’s floor.

  1. You give abuse victims a bad name. It would be an amazing story if you didn’t leave out a few key facts. Might want the people to know that you helped your abuser stay out prison and do very little time. Than you went right back to him when he got out of jail.
