I looked upon the ocean,
Gandering at the sea,
I began to notice,
How it reflects you and me
Life is just a mystery.
You don’t see what goes on inside.
All these forms of life
That you don’t get from the outside.
To notice the life that’s there –
You have to go down deep
Looking past all the bad –
All the mess, all the heap.
So next time you’re at the ocean –
No matter you’re mess or your location.
Remember to look out at the sea,
And see the beauty of life
Inside of you and inside of me.

The author's comments:

I was just thinking of something to write- something with meaning. Then I thought about nature, and all the beauty that it beholds it. I wanted to write about something that caputures that in a different way - the ocean. Where beauty and life are one together - creating the beauty you see when you go past the surface. I believe that that is what you have to do with us. Go past the surface of people - and look into the life and beauty we hold inside. You may have to go deep - but in the end, the beaty you see in someone is always worth
