The Sea

The teacher said, "Write what you know."
So, I wrote about the sea.
As a baby, I came from it, gasping for breath, screaming into air.
As a boy, I conquered it, riding its cool rush into the shore.
As a youth, I loved in it, thrilling at the touch of submerged skin.
As a man, I dreamt beside it, wading in warm shallows.
As an elder, I belonged to it, sailing over ancient depths.
How I yearn to return to it, gasping for breath, screaming but making no sound.
That's what I know about the sea.
