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.
