You may be an island all alone
in a tumultuous, unforgiving ocean
If that's true,
you're also a mountain
refusing to yield
to the unrelenting sea.

life ordered. A different perspective! ~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

Deeply thoughtful piece! The 'mountain', 'Ocean', 'Sea', this is a strong imagery!

"Poetry is invariably imbued with a sense of calm and serenity".


Even though one may be alone, they are still strong! Great job!
