Alone
Far in the ocean, a single rock lay.
No trees, no land, nothing to see.
Only the dark blue waters, and the black gloomy sky.
Lonely and sad on this rock I stand
Blank is my mind, just trying to understand.
The roaring winds stirring up a storm.
All alone, as I watch it form.
The more frightened I get.
The waters begin to turn evil,
Crashing waves upon my rock.
The longer I stand, the weaker I get.
I'm becoming cold and drenching wet.
Each gusting wind, knocking me down.
I know not what to do?
I have nowhere to turn to.
The storms getting worse, I pray this is no curse.
I don't know how much longer I can stand,
Stand on my rock and not understand.
I'm lost and lonely, not wanting to be without you.
Whatever will I do?
Do I stand on my rock until the storm ends,
Or do I jump in, and pray for all of my sins.

Hi nonsence,

Water can be very deceptive, Soothing and yet a killer.Very nice poem, remember you are standing on a rock (symbolic of your wisdom)and that wisdom will help pull you through.

Well, I have a different Rock that I stand on in times of trouble or uncertainty. That ROCK is Jesus!  Very intense poem...

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.
