THE SEA AND ME

By Jordanna Drego

Life is so complex at times

I cannot figure out why

I do not understand myself

No matter how hard I try

Why do I feel so happy

Or why do I feel so sad

Is such a great mystery

I cannot fathom why

When I look out from my window

I see the sea so blue

The waters seem to leap with joy

Which makes my heart leap too

But sometimes those very waters

They crash upon the shore

They flow with a great vengeance

That frightens me to the core

Now I’ve come to the conclusion

I’m so very much like the sea

Like those poor little waves

That do not understand why

At times they sparkle with life & joy

And at times are so cruel and mean
