"Standing against the Wave" by Michael, 17 | The Pioneers
At many points in my life
I’ve struggled to stand against the wave.
When the wave comes
I stand waiting.
It’s building up taller than life.
When the wave gets close to me
I stand my ground
And wait to fall and tip over.
But now I stand
and face the struggles of life.
And after the wave flows by me
I look back
and see the mistakes I have made.
About Michael: "My name is Michael. I am 17 years old, and I'm from Centuria, WI. When I get older my dream job is to be an electrical lineman and to build a farm and have a ranch. This photography unit has taught me that I have great talents. It also means I can do more with my life then just sit around. When I leave this photography unit I will wish I could keep taking photos with one-of-a-kind teachers like Benjamin Thwaits."
