A Vacation, A Tragedy

A pretty walk along the beach With her family was all she wanted A huge wave, she was out of reach The rules in her mind, she never did breach The water around her legs taunted She countered to the call of the beach A teasing smile, a sudden screech, The waves pulled as she was gusted Her mother's hand she wasn’t able to reach Unexpected was the sea's angry leash She struggled to breathe as water flooded, And she was pulled away from the beach The cries of her mother stopped midspeech The panic gone, her soul departed, The silence and the noise beyond reach A moment of happiness life did teach Can turn into a sorrow, life is twisted, A beautiful holiday by the beach Family vacations shattered and out of reach     Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
