Like an Ocean

by Devina

via bluewallpaper org

I am like an ocean
Angry, restless and stormy
When troubled and distressed

I am like an ocean
Serene, confident and playful
And a beautiful sight to behold
Like a sea at sunset
And the sweet sight of dawn

I am like an ocean
Used and abused
By man

I am susceptible to pollution
Violence and hate
Influenced by man
I am polluted with their
Carelessness, cruelty and selfishness

I am like an ocean
My mood swings are dangerous
Then, my sudden tranquility
Can leave you breathlessly
stunned
