The Ocean

Written by: ngaire patiole

The ocean is untamed; 

crashing down, 

it rips the sand from under your feet.

The waves without mercy 

smash anything in their path; 

only the strong survive.

So cold and dark, 

a grave too many ships; 

taking life with one swoop.

Sometimes calming, 

like a sleeping lion; 

mysterious and unforgiving creatures, 

lurk beneath the ocean deep.

Twisting, twilling, 

and shaping the land like a giant hand.
