The Sea, My Paradise

And under the sea I have lived;

lived and escaped ruthless humanity 

Distant dreams, more distant life

Yet, like a work of art beautifully tainted.

I have lived and loved the ocean blue,

the creatures too minuscule for my pounding heart.

With every breath I have inhaled tranquility

I have been engulfed by waves,

and in the waters I have immersed 

to quieten the mayhem in my heart

I have danced to the melody of the rising tides

And with the falling tides, unperturbed I have slept

Like the pebbles smoothened by the waves,

I have attained my paradise in the sea.
