i sat by the ocean

oh what a beautiful place to be

away from commotion

just the moon, the sand, and me


and i, for once, felt calm

no more war, no more cries

a subtle grasp from the ocean's palm

i became aware of my size


and in that moment


i am no one

nothing at all

it wouldn't matter if i were ten. feet. tall.

i still would mean nothing at all

    I find the power of the ocean to be a great leveller. Akin to sitting amid the hills of a windswept day or beneath the tapestry of stars on a clear night. Each of those teach me of my insignificance and somehow bring a peace to my frustrations.
