I am the ocean drowning in sorrows

I swallow the wave tides into motion

The sky singing its angelic rythm

And seagulls frolic enjoying the scene

I am the golden sand glimmer in hot yellow

The sun's blinding with a million rays

Bliss flies over the silver horizon

Destiny obliges that I have to stay

I glimpse afar and there lies a bar

A bar full of drinks of happiness and spree 

I see a girl with a twisted face

She's so young but seems like she's aged

The glimmer in her eyes was like the sun's 

Only difference is it's not hyped fun

The ocean absorbed the colour of her lips

The tides washed away her smile

Yet, she came by

She looked up the feathery clouds 

Searching for answers to be satisfied 

Kept that hopeful imagery in mind

The ocean heard her whispers and joined

Then she let go of her bitter past regrets

Watching slowly,

 as the ocean swallowed them...

Sometimes the best therapy is a trip to the wise ocean. It swallows sorrows and lurking negativity. Dear ocean, you're my best friend.
