The sea won't float me

all will float  upon the mighty  sea
even an  ship but won’t float me
ducks can  ride upon the  gentle swells
but it won’t take me , only its shells

driftwood resting upon the shore
eagles heading up to soar
stars are out and seem to float
I could sail under if I had a boat.

The ark carried the animals across the sea
but it won’t  take mercy upon  me
whales and seals marvel the buoyancy 
but to me the  sea shows  no leniency.

 the winds also have  turned me down
can’t float on them so I would drown
no matter what I try to do  I fail
if I had wings I could surf and sail.

what  is it with me that the sea does not like
if I could walk on water, I could take a hike
more than ever I want to lie upon the sea
but never will it take just me
