To Be

All along it hasn't been enough

being as myself.

I wanna be the ocean 

so that I never feel empty.


Never again, incomplete.

While listening to the sound 

of the deep that surrounds me.


A sign of relief 

that adapts to the sea.

For all the fallen dreams

seeking clarity inside of me.


I wanna be the ocean.

    Clayton, my friend, welcome to soup. I love your form and rhythm and creativity of your poems. I've been here a fairly short time myself. I like to find humor in things. In this one I'm led to say that in wanting to be the ocean you will have some mighty big shoes to fill ----- That's OK though.... You got all the water in the world to fill 'em with.... Respectfully.... Jake
