Poetry on Odyssey: Sinking

Your pain will float away eventually.

Poetry on Odyssey: Sinking

This poem is a metaphor to show that whatever pain or negativity you are going through is not permanent and will soon float away.


Our lives are like a mere ship

Or so we think

That no one will come to save us

And we're stuck in a deep abyss

It's silly

To believe we're all lost in the ocean

Or we won't ever see the blue skies, when really

The waves are safe, unlike our minds

That is slowly losing sanity day by day

You're drowning in your pain, but don't say

That you need the company to help you through your own shipwreck

You aren't sinking. You aren't sinking.

You aren't digging into the sea

I know you cannot breathe

But instead of swearing off the sea urchins

Think that they are actually quite pretty, lurking

In your sea

Don't be afraid to feel so free

Or lift yourself up light and feathery

Because you aren't sinking.
