– by the sea –

Facing the truth of this new war,

I stroll to the shoreline and witness

just what I need for battle.

The waves I see are unwavering,

even more so with rays of gold smiling upon them.

The rocks I walk upon are unforgiving,

maintaining the masculinity of godly men.


the oxygen I take in is unfamiliar,

a higher power I just cannot place.

This is where the eastern shore reveals

just what I need the most:


It is this calm chaos that grants me

some token of peace,

even under pressures of war.
