I prefer silence
as the waves crash before me
I don’t want to be bothered
by these people, my friends, or my family
What else is there to be said?
I mean- look at the ocean…
it is far too deep, vast, and indifferent
for me to add in my little notions
But still they want me to jump in
“Join us! … the water is just fine!”
“No thank you,” I think to myself
I’m just fine here, with me, and mine
But alas, I know I must make my splash
Though I just want to keep my feet in the sand
I will splash! Yes, I may crash…
But if it is so, then crash I must!
