The Sea

There’ve been many times I’ve asked the sea
“What is it that I should strive to be?
I know to be kind, I know to be brave
I know to kiss shores, as do your waves
I know to have passion, I know to love
I know this shell is not all I am made of
I know to be silent, I know to rise high
I know to let surface, mirror the sky
I know to be grateful, I know to live now
I know to live life without knowing how.

  1. The sea, indeed, is all passion and love in its embrace of vast shorelines, accommodating of kinks and rocky patches, driving home the message of acceptance and loving harmony.Your poem, Lily, depicts it all most lyrically.
