By the sea


  • Nature

    By the sea

    By the sea, I sit alone
    No one around
    Nothing but the sounds of the ocean waves crashing down
    I feel the waves come under my feet
    As the night sky approaches, I think to myself
    I think about everything
    I think about the present
    Remember the past
    Fear the future
    I think about life
    My life
    Where I came from
    Where God is leading me
    I think about my friends
    All the laughs
    All the fun times we shared
    How they are moving away
    I think about the things I've achieved in my life
    And what I've learned
    I think about my life
    The bad times
    The times I wish I was a better person
    The days I didn't want to be around
    The times that hurt me the most
    The lost of blood
    The lack of faith
    Spirit and hope
    The shattering of my heart
    The birth of angels
    The tears pouring down my face
    The angry building inside of me
    I think and remember the yesterdays of my life
    The days that made me strong
    Even when I felt so weak
    By the sea, I pray for the future
    I pray that I find strength not to fear the future
    That God shines light on me and everyone I love
    So we can move and have strength through each day
    I lay down
    The waves roll underneath my body
    Moving me away from the sea and towards the steps
    They roll over my face
    I get up and walk up the stairs
    I turn around and look at the sea
    I give thanks to God
    through all of my thoughts
    He spoke to me through the motion and sounds of the waves
    I turn around and walk away from the shore
    Fearless and with the ability to walk in this world

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
