Sea glass

I want to age like sea glass. 
Smoothed by tides, 
but not broken. 
I want my hard edges to soften. 
I want to ride the waves 
and go with the flow. 
I want to catch a wave 
and let it carry me 
to where I belong. 
I want to be picked up 
and held gently by 
those who delight in my 
well earned patina and 
appreciate the changes I went 
through to achieve that beauty. 
I want to enjoy the journey 
and always remember that if 
you give the ocean something 
breakable it will turn it into 
something beautiful. 
I want to age like sea glass.
