THIS IS THE OCEAN SPEAKING (POEM)

THIS IS THE OCEAN SPEAKING  

IT IS ME, THE OCEAN SPEAKING TO YOU

LISTEN CLEARLY TO THIS OFFERED VIEW

AS I SHOW MY EBB AND FLOW

I’LL PROVIDE YOU WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

IF YOU CAN LEARN TO MOVE IN SYNC WITH MY WAVES

THAN YOU CAN APPLY IT TO YOUR LIFE IN MANY WAYS

THERE WILL BE TIMES THAT I’M GOING TO BE ROUGH

THIS WILL PREPARE YOU FOR WHEN YOUR LIFE GETS TOUGH

DO NOT CHALLENGE ME WHEN I’M SHOWING AN OBVIOUS DANGER

SOMETHING LIFE MIGHT HIDE BEHIND A STRANGER

BOTH GOOD AND BAD WILL BE SHOWN ON THE SURFACE

OTHERWISE WHAT WOULD BE THE PURPOSE

ALL THESE THOUGHTS WEIGHING YOU DOWN

OUT HERE WOULD CAUSE YOU TO DROWN

WHEN THINGS IN LIFE SEEM UNCLEAR

COME TO ME FOR YOUR REFLECTION TO APPEAR

AS YOU LOOK AT THE REFLECTION I PROVIDE

DON’T FORGET BELOW THAT MANY OTHERS RESIDE

IT IS TIME FOR ME TO HEAD OUT

THIS SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO THINK ABOUT

THERE IS NO NEED FOR CONCERN

OF COURSE I AM GOING TO RETURN

REMEMBER I AM AT THE MERCY OF OTHER FORCES

I THINK ARE FAIR IN DISTRIBUTING MY RESOURCES

AS I TEMPORARILY RETREAT

DO NOT THINK THIS CONVERSATION IS COMPLETE
