Row, row, row your boat

I wondered how I got here

to this place

I wondered was it all my doing

or were there other contributing factors involved

like a tidal wave crashing down on the beach’s sand

I was one of the tiny little grains amongst all the others

and yet one sunray saw me exceedingly different than all the rest

with words that cant be taken back

actions that weren’t fulfilled

I hopelessly grasp onto memories that try escaping

but now…

now they’d cast me away to the ocean’s floor

without batting an eye

I wondered was it all me

or does it take two to row a boat in opposite directions?
