The sea -
So vast a creature is she,
Has been made out in our history
To be
As boundless as she is careless,
Both a prison and liberty,
Heroine, villain,
Beast and beauty

But the sea -
To me,
Is considered to be
An antidote, refiner,
Tonic or remedy
To the venom boiling
Inevitably in me

Tugging at the roots of malice
and replenishing with peace
Both philanthropist and thief -
The cleansing swell of the sea
