Unexplored Depths

Physical depths have been explored and measured not memories

The oceans were explored,
and depths measured.
The depths are known,
and the passages are known.
Ships have torn through
the bosom of the seas.
Many centuries kings
sent explorers to find
the wealth and lands
Today they still carry
things people will be
happy to have and own.
They also take men and
arsenal to scare and rule.
Many sailors have died.
To the power of the sea,
and the depths are known.
The depths not still
known to us
are within us.
We have had sorrows
and joys through life.
They became our self.
They are stored memories.
They are more profound
than the oceans with the biggest
depths measured by men.
You can come out of the
Oceans.
It is harder still to measure
the depth of memories and
to swim out of them.

Thank you for reading
