“The Girl at Sea”


She went to sea
Perhaps, she wanted to flee
far far away from this world
where she can’t be hurled
again in the sea

she saw front and behind
As she got blind
That time
That pain became so prime
that nothing came to her mind

she needed a great escape
from that trouble and trap
But nothing she got
even for that, she fought
and remained only in gaps

Sea was very calm
and a little warm
then a voice came from her behind
Like the sun shined
“Go,get to work and be calm”

That voice taught her truth
that she is born for only growth,
she can’t change her fate
and by herself,she can’t be set
And that was her life’s truth.

    i’m glad there was this voice preventing her from doing what she was about to do…esp. as a teenager you’re in an unstable mood at times….and when things go wrong and the pain gets too heavy…we need more of these soothing voices that tell them that they have a future..

    I really really like this. There’s power in the sea that brings knowledge of what we must do to become truevto ourselves atbthe same time that it provides energy to take on all possibilities. I like how you bring us into contact with this potential, the spectrum of choices affecting the decisive moment.

    Nice form here- just made it soloing and easy to read- I liked the sentiment too- there’s something in the sea that represents turbulent emotion- whether visible in its crashing waves, or hidden beneath its glassy millpond…and your poem spoke to me in this way. Very much enjoyed
