Sea like People
Vast and mighty ocean
Why pretend to be blue?
Angry yes, at times you seems,
but blue isn’t you.
Is it because …
the sun steals your substance
and gives it to the clouds?
But the rain returns your essence
ten thousand fold.
Is it because the land stops you
from roaming thoughtlessly free?
The earth screams self defense.
You snatch the sun’s sensation
and warm yourself at night.
Are you sad because your angry torrent
claimed so many lives?
