Purely fiction...but then again...?


Should I swim out from the shore,

Till I cannot swim anymore,

Allow myself to sink to the depths,

That is the thought on my mind for sure…

 

Life can be hard most certain,

Till we one day cross the curtain,

Passing to the other side,

Avoiding the rest of this ride…

 

The sun bright on the waves,

I float without any craves,

And as I come to the end of my swim,

Mother Ocean does around me fold,

Her loving arms & I sink into her abyss,

Feeling her loving kiss, I now know absolute bliss…

Peace comes at the ocean but not the way to end life either. I know everyone thinks of it sometimes, but life must go on til your maker calls you home. Meanwhile, i'll enjoy the ocean every time i get to go there. Thanks, good write still, Ed.

Wow, you've really upset Sis and Ma, again.

PS: That sure doesn't look like you in the pic. Go outside and roll around in the mud or the sand for awhile; that always makes me feel much better.

"Thou shall not kill." Yes, that includes not killing ourselves.
I have been where you are, Ed. Even today, I still quite often say, 'Why not today, Lord? Why not today.' But I truly know that my end is at His time; not in mine. Unless I'm just plain stupid of course. Have faith, be strong and turn it over to God. Anytime you'd like to talk, my friend, just let me know. Trust in God.

Get over whatever is bothering you,and find the joy that life has to offer. Damn it Bro,I don't like to read such thoughts,from you!

I enjoy being by the ocean and even on the ocean; not so much in the ocean. Thank you, Ed. Love and peace to you,

ED ... WHILE I LOVE BEING NEAR THE OCEAN, AND WATCHING IT ...

I CARE NOT TO ACTUALLY BE 'IN' IT ...

USUALLY TOO DAMNED COLD FOR ME ...

AND ... I ALWAYS WANT TO SEE SHORE AT THE SEASHORE ...

Virus laden pizza driven alcohol based bliss. Take a gun along in case you chicken out at the last minute. Starfish-dust thou art, and to starfish-dust, tough, thou shalt return, Jersey! Love the ride.

A worhwhile projection of thoughts on how you'd like to depart this earth, and so you should as best you can, if you have the choice;there are no return tickets though, you best know, before you go. A wonderful encompassing fold of life in thought and poetry Jersey. Jasmin Horst

Well, for sure you would be where you most love, Ed, the sea.
