“The Ocean of Today” [poem i wrote]

in poem •  last year 

I was recently reading a post by @donkeypong :: Three Poems from W.B. Yeats, a Man Who Gave All His Heart and we got to chatting about poetry. Although I've written a few poems in my day, I haven't written one in a long time. So, I want to thank @donkeypong for inspiring me to take some time to ponder life and write a poem.

“The Ocean of Today”

[poem by @transformed // Robb Gorringe]


In the islands of the sea

Floating on my knees

Cheerful in the day

Yet crying myself to sleep

.

An ocean of regret

How can I forget

Reminded by the faces

Dying from neglect

.

When the sun began to shine

Traveled back in my mind

Dark were the clouds

Blinded by the signs

.

Will it matter if I pray

There just might be a way

The tide may begin to turn

In the ocean of today
.
.
.
