It’s as if nature is speaking for us in this piece. Enjoy the imagery, revel in the emotions!
I don’t know what I’m doing or where I stand
before these waves on this forlorn strand
will the waters inundate me and make me flow
or the wind push me away with its aerial force?
Lost in this giant abyss and life’s unbearable heat
I long for the shade, the faraway streets
exhausted beyond endurance, suffered beyond suffering
lone, melancholy, a troubled, broken thing…
Water, carry me now, or Earth, swallow me whole
Fire, leave no traces behind, when to the Air, you let me go…
