the ocean blows, it whispers in my ear
the songs of the tide and ship wrecked sea.
the waves slowly inviting me in.
gently tugging at my feet.
so soft and so cold
yet so deathly and dangerous.
the mysteries it must bear.
the vast emptiness it shows.
as i slowly enter the waves wrap around me
holding me close, almost to close,
with bittersweet pleasure i continue to progress.
telling myself to not look back.
just a few more feet.
i emerse in the water holding my breath.
little by little i feel the urge to rise
thinking on life and all things past.
i realize its so worth while.
in a struggle i surface breathing in heavily
taking in the scenery and all that i once took forgranted.
