Living Like The Ocean - Poem by Jean L. Barney

I would love to live, like the ocean
Always running, so wild and free
With a body, that is so full of emotion
Spread fully out, for everyone to see
Traveling, to all the unknown destinies
To all the places, I would love to see
Always standing proud, much higher than me
Never afraid to be, what ever it wants to be
We can hear it roaring so loud, when it's angry
But a voice that can be soothing, as it speaks deep and raspy
Bringing out all our inner most feelings, we must all agree
Of love and serenity, as we listen to it soaring free.
