404. Lost In An Ocean Of Discontent
I am nothing more than a piece of drifting debris,
Swept away with the rip tide, and taken by the current,
Battered by angry winds, tossed about in the sea,
At the element's mercy, lost in an ocean of discontent .
Dragged under in a whirlpool, swirling out of control,
Brought to the depths of my soul, there left to forever roam,
Drowning in my sorrow, searching for the life they stole,
Longing for firm footing, always traveling further from home.
Frozen down to the bone, an existence left without feeling,
Gasping for one last breath, and yet not wanting any more,
Lost in a vast lonely ocean, I am left destitute and reeling,
Hoping that one day perhaps I will wash up on a friendly shore.
