I Stand To Be Corrected

Rating: 5.0
As I stand here
With feet in sculpted sand
I look out to sea
For guidance perhaps...
Perhaps for hope...
Perhaps for a sign...
Who really knows

Waves toss seaweed
Like a limp rag doll
And the ocean...
Churns the depths below

I offer up my soul
But alas...
It returns to me
Along with the flotsam

Apparently...
It is not perfection
It is not...
Of virginal purity...
And so...
Here I stand...
Waiting to be corrected

Please...
Let the frigid wind
That blows the gale fierce
Blow through these bones...
And tear away my pain
Let it cast away my torment
Let it whip through my very being
And remove that which is evil
From my soul...

But alas...
I fear...
That when the storm dies
And all is calm again
All that shall remain of me...
Is a pile of salt bleached bones!

Hi Dee. Having just spent two days at the sea side I know how watching the waves can bring these thoughts to the fore, but also how it can bring the inner peace whilst watching the waves come and go. A very good read thanks. Regards Dave T
