Freedom Sea

Freedom Sea short poem

Photo by Atilla1000

Well there comes a time when every boy
Must become a man but don’t cry mama
I’ll be just fine on my own and I don’t need
Anyone to hold my hand I know you’ll
Miss me while I’m gone and I’ll miss you
Too but now I must be moving along
I hear the call of the wild and I can see
A new day a dawning out on the open sea
Well and it’s now I know this is my destiny
Don’t you go I got to follow my heart
Wherever it takes me and there is no freedom
Like the freedom of riding out the waves of
A deep, deep blue sea
I’m not saying I don’t have mixed emotions
But I’ll work’em out in time so please mama
Don’t you cry God will take care of me and
All will turn out to be fine I wanna see the
World now and live like a gypsy I ain’t
Getting any younger don’t you know, no
And I’m not getting anywhere here in a hurry
I hear the call of the wild and I can see
A new day a dawning out on the open sea
Well and it’s now I know this is my destiny
Don’t you go I got to follow my heart
Wherever it takes me and there is no freedom
Like the freedom of riding out the waves of
A deep, deep blue sea
This is my destiny…
I can feel it in my heart…
Just like a gypsy…
Freedom calling out to me…
Taken, taken by the sea…

The Sea Soaked She And The Sun ode

Away from the crowd She whispered her tale. To the cresting waves, To the frothy foam, To the flying seagulls, They knew her soul. They were waiting for her To wash her heart. She left the remains, She was carrying

Sea Monkeys

Sea Monkeys short poem

Everything we know, or think we know, comes from an infinitesimal speck of time and space. “Important” people, just random specks of insignificance. Nothing more than Sea Monkeys, fluttering around Sea Monkey world. Everything spoken as truth only reinforces ignorance.
