Lost at Sea



There was once a girl who had a lustful take on life

There was another girl who didn't believe she was beautiful


There was once a girl who was not articulate

There was another girl who was indisciplined


The thought of a world after the day was a crazy myth

She only saw past her nose and nothing more


She lived in the bathroom and won in the bedroom

She gradually found herself lost at the sea


There she was...

... in the storm


And she did nothing, but float

Waking and sleeping

Through the rise and set of the shine

She wasn't just lost


She...Just...Was!


One day, she suddenly realized she wasn't drowning

but she was also not swimming

She wasn't stuck

She floating

So she sat up and realized she was seating


Seating on pieces of the wrecked wood

Freaked out

She fell into the sea

But she realized she wasn't sinking

She looked up and a strand of her braid was stuck in the piece of wood


So she hung onto the wood

She laughed remembering how jack did not share the plank with Rose

She would have definitely shared the plank or better still pushed Rose off and found her way to shore


She was still floating

She had not moved


An overwhelming joy rose up from within


"I am not drowning..."


Finally, she looked up and so ravens

She looked ahead and saw pieces of wood further away

So she smiled and began to paddle with her hands.


There were no sharks

The weather was great

She was moving

She spied with her little eye

A distant island


Full of joy she began to scream

She was saved


She drifted and got lost

But found her way


Make it make sense
