The boat

It was a boat
That floated on a sea
A sea of peace and true tranquility
All was calm
As it drifted
Away from the storm
It sounded a single note
Sifting through the water
Time to be
Simply be
To let go of what was
And behold what is
It was on a journey
To find the unknown
It’s sad but true
The unknown
Scares us all
We hold on to what was
Because we all to often
Don’t know what’s to come
It’s like a boat
That floats on the open sea
With no known land in sight to calm our fear
Of the unknown

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
