we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

I walk to ocean's edge

Afraid, feeling I am on a tight-rope.

I do not want to fall, I do not want to

Let the ocean fill me up

And take me under

Keep me prisoner.

The dead of winter

I walk barefoot

Leaving my temporary mark

On the world.

The coldness

I don't feel it

The loneliness

Isn't there.

Me and the ocean

Apart from the world

Me and the ocean

Scared and afraid.

But me and the ocean

Are courageous and bright

We are not scared

We are not afraid.

But no one will

Ever know

Who we truly are


Me and the ocean

No one

Will ever
