The Ocean

Written by: Tucker Carwile Jr


                        I need the ocean to protect me,
                            with its pounding surf.
                         Able to beat back,
                             my strongest fears.

                          Building sand castles,
                              up to the sky.
                          Standing behind its ramparts
                              defending my soul.

                          When you are away from me,
                                     I need to oean.
