Sail away into the horizon across the sea and on

Farther away from all forms of modern civilization

Floating in an expanse of clear water and beyond

Into a lonely world where only sea creatures mention


The colours amaze and dwell without disturbance

Every direction looking just plain as the other

A sphere where waves churn in stark turbulence

And torrents of disarray agitate to bother


Across a vast expanse that pities no man

Many have perished in their failed conquest

Blown to nether land like a bitter ban

No prayers answered, not even humble request


The mighty ocean; never ending nor receding

It’s depths an abyss of bottomless fathom

Man has cried and died in midst of pleading

But swallowed in whole by the watery phantom


Petrified as you may be; there’s yet another side

One that’s calm, beautiful and peaceful

Like all things, there’re two sides a wide

One is benign and the other stays baneful


This is a world where lonely hearts retreat to

Far from the audacity of courageous living

There is so much yet simply nothing to do

And there’s so little yet so much of a being
