You will see a different style here, I think.

Glass Ocean

From the soft breezes
Of a mind at peace
In a softness of a heart
At rest with the world
Sea winds calm the nerves
In a sense of divine purpose

So often the struggle within
Lies in depressed reality
Where the abrasive tears
Erodes the faith of will power
Seeking the illumination of change
Darkness sets in drowning
Any hope of change

Yet a walk of isolated inspiration
The winds of a silken sea
Mirror its reflection
Inside a spirit seeking change
In a meditative cleansing
The serenity cuddles its blanket
In a chilling warmth

Dark clouds of a beast of burden
Had conquered the idea
Of any chance of changing attitudes
Being a slave within your own mind
Never gambling on dreams
Of fairy tales

Sitting before nature’s portrait
Whose landscapes imprint images
In sighs of peaceful interactions
A serine tranquility blankets
The fog into crystal clarity
Visions of your own self worth
Before the alter of God

From these simple words
Before you now
Such a sense of comfort
Will close the world of closets
Hiding your naked fears
From ever being seen
In a smile so darn special
That only you
Can possess it

But life haunts me
As it shall you
On a roller coaster
Ride of tears
Of happiness
In defeat
In sadness

My words are just the wind
Playing tricks of imagery
For the magic lies
In what kind of spell
You can cast on this world
From so deep inside you
The storms will never subside
Even on a glass ocean

Thought: Life is so simple for in order to breath, you must have your own air.
