You are currently viewing Fighting the Ocean
forcing waves to settle
a careless struggle
all for what?
sea glass can just
cut, cut, cut.

lungs compress in the abyss,
tread carefully in the sea.
smooth glass can soothe the heel,
apply liberally.

i watch the phase
of the moon slowly
darken like the sky,
and soon, your face too
bye, bye, bye.

-Writing on Waves

The ocean is a force that can bring calming life. If you are not careful, you will drown. This poem explores how we can try to go against nature, but this is a force we can’t control. We fight nature, only to realize it’s best to let it be.
