Nothing but a Snowflake in a Sea

October 1, 2011
I am but a snowflake in a sea,
original when standing alone,
even wondrous,
but when I an thrust into the sea,
I melt and loose all of my originality,
becoming no longer a single thing,
or even a part,
but a whole,
I am no longer I,
I am it,
it is me,
him,
her,
them,
us,
it.
any attempts of escape would be unheard of,
for now I am not only forgotten by those who
wooed at my originality, my beauty,
but I am forgotten to myself,
once the sea swallows you there is no hope,
for there is no you.
