O, the murmurring waves --


I abandon my struggle, withdraw myself totally,
     into the bottomless abyssal waters of the ocean;
Floating, borne along the currents, alone and adrift,
               the never ending battle with life withers away.

                         O, the murmuring waves ~~

Crumbling, falling to fragments are my worries,
     I let myself free fall, plunge into the dark unknown;
A lone drifter, a wanderer, I waft into the deep blue abyss,
               no bonds hold me, no chains or bindings tether me.

                         O, the murmuring waves ~~

And in this vision, I surface the oceans cadence,
     I glisten with water droplets, long raven hair drenched;
Outstretching my hands to the brilliant, shining sun, I rise up,
               a beautiful bird gliding along with the undulating waves.

                        O, the murmuring waves ~~

    Nicely written, Constance. Each verse washes over me just like the murmuring wave. Forlorn, hopeless and then reborn - beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
