The sound of the ocean,
Both deadly and sweet,
Drowns out all others-
Never once a defeat.

She stares us all down,
Enjoying her threats,
Yet enticing us each-
She's placing her bets.

With her sing-song voice,
A beauty, no lie,
She calls us right to her-
Convinced we won't die.

But it's her, you see,
Who's convinced us of such,
Her crashes and waves-
We use as a crutch.

Our minds are enveloped,
In honey, sweet music,
Hypnotized, we dive-
To her it's fun; sick.

The sound of the ocean,
Both deadly and sweet,
Drowns out all others-
Never once a defeat.

This Poem, literally, is about the ocean. Figuratively it is up to the reader. Personally, to me it means that everything has a greedy reason for everything they do.
