The Ocean and Me
Before this live,
Maybe I was water.
When I stand in front of the ocean,
I am so peaceful.
When the waves
come to me,
I throw myself to the
water and I become water.
When I stay in the water for one hour,
my heart becomes like an ocean;
my soul, soft like babe seaweed.
I don't say anything
but the sea knows.
Even thought the sea doesn't say anything,
I know
I was the sea.
When I stand
in front of the ocean,
I melt.
I become blue water.
