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

KNOWING SOMETHING- (QUOTE)

“THOSE WHO THINK THEY KNOW SOMETHING ONLY FAIL TO REALIZE THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE KNOWN. YOU CAN REASON WITH A PERSON THAT BELIEVES SOMETHING, BUT NOT WITH SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS TO KNOW SOMETHING.”

STEPHEN JAMES

DO NOT SAY “LIFE IS NOT EASY” WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING

ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE “SNAP PHRASES” THAT SHOULD NOT BE USED UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS!

First of all, it is not meant to be applied to all negative situations. Anyone using it only in a time of hardship is misusing it!

It should be understood that any life that is not easy, is actually a LIFE BEING LIVED!

THAT CAN BE A GREAT THING! IT CAN ALSO BE A DIFFICULT THING! BUT, ANYONE WHO IS TRULY IS AWARE THAT LIFE IS NOT EASY IS A REASSURANCE THAT YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIVES!

MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND AND BELIEVE IN THAT STATEMENT BEFORE USING IT
