Scarlett Sassin, Grade 7, Mt Carmel College
2nd in the 'Just Keep Writing 2019' competition
Swirling dark blue.
Waves crash down.
Slowly sinking down, down, down.
Falling into the deep hoping I won’t drown.
The sound of thoughts rushing out of my head.
The brave but fearful emotion hits.
Breath taking – mind taking.
Explosions in my head.
The silence is so loud.
So blindingly clear.
Dark clouds covering the sky and light.
Crashing waves fade.
Mortal body freezing.
Opening my eyes through the cold glass mirror leading to a new world.
My ocean soul turns gold – My old world folds.
