Looking for Life

To the sea
For the waves
To thrash me against the rocks
For they cannot break me
Any more than I am already broken
There is no drowning
There is no death
Because I already feel all these things
What I search for is life
The energy of churning waters
That it may invigorate my insides
Find me a purpose, awaken me
Release my lust for living
That has been sequestered within
For perhaps I am not broken
Just troubled beyond the breakers
White horses peak on each of my fears
Stir my insecurities to a froth
For the winds of existence agitate them
And I seek the calm and the sunlight
A bridge to beyond the frenzied turmoil
To have a reason and vision to get up
