Upon The Open Ocean


My heart and soul

want to be

upon the open ocean,

with not a care

in the world.

I long to be free

from this harsh,

hateful world,

I want to sail away

and be along side

the whales and dolphins.

Upon the open ocean

is where I want to be,

away from the existance

of hate among humans.

I hear and see the

same thing every day

on the news,

people getting killed,

raped and tortured.

What kind of place

is this to live?

I like this poem a lot, nicely done. Sometimes I feel that way like you just want to get away from it all. And its a good thing you didn't give up on poetry, your very good at it.
