"Life is far too important to be taken seriously" - Oscar Wilde


Oh the unforgiving sea,
Your waves comes to encircle me.

Down into the depths below,
Victim of the undertow!

Deeper in your murky depths,
I feel I’ll face a sailor’s death..

But then, alas, my hopes renewed,
Your shining surface now in view!

Afloat, I feel the ocean breeze,
No longer a captive to the sea.

Swimming ashore as the sun beats down,
To think that I could ever drown?

Such an absurd point of view..
Oh sparkling sea, I’ve forgiven you!


The author's comments:
I've never actually come close to drowning, I just like dramatic poetry.

I love it!! :) But I think it might be even more dramtic or whatever if you didn't use exclamation marks. But that's just me. Still great though!
