Fisher’s life

He spends his time
On the water’s edge
Rod in hand
An expansive
Ocean within glance
He sets his life on the line
Each time
He sets sail
In those ocean waves
He’s a man
That’s been taught
To fish for days
For he doesn’t want
To waste his life away
For someone
To give him
The catch of the day

Hello everyone! My name is Angelica and I currently live in Los Angeles. I’m excited and nervous for next Saturday. This will be my first marathon I’m participating in. Not sure what to expect other than having little sleep that day, ┬áhaving lots of snacks handy and maybe even some coffee! I plan on getting as much rest as possible the night before.

I’ve been writing for about 15 years and I absolutely love it! Writing has became my “safe place”, a place where I can just let it all out. I thought it would be a great experience participating in the marathon this year. I feel that it will allow me to push myself in ways I haven’t pushed myself before. I’m nowhere near where I aspire to be as a writer/poet, so what better way to continue challenging myself!

Wishing everyone the best next Saturday! I can’t wait to read what everyone shares ­čÖé
