I am the Shell Keeper


 

@ImaGeees The Shell keeper

 

Somedays,

I am the shell keeper,

the lone guardian of their sea.

Somedays at the shore, I trove memories.

Somedays,

a soothsayer, trudging

raised barriers, taking a leap of faith.

Somedays,

I am a naysayer,

fearful of a future, unseen.

@ImaGeees The Shell keeper

But.

On all days,

undoubtedly, I am a woman;

the creator, a mother; the protector,

the protector, sowing seeds for tomorrow,

nurturing their dreams, protecting their vulnerabilities;

from unfelt, untested, untouched, unsmelt, unseen nightmares and dreams.
