I've always found my peace at the sea. To feel the waves, to taste the salt, to float weightless. Sometimes the water gets cold and you have to swim against the waves but you can always turn to whatever direction you choose. Being close to the sea puts life into perspective. That's how I see life, as a sea where you can turn anywhere.
But sometimes I think I'm one with the sea. Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning in it, when the salty drops roll down my cheeks and run down my neck. One with the sea to the point it bursts out of the corners of my eyes. It drowns me but at the same time it keeps me alive. Fighting against but it flows within.
