Beg the Sea
By Noah Wallace
Take me sea, oh toward the past.
Bring me back from forlorn strife.
Or drown me now and do it fast.
Help me break these bonds of life.
For life is long and hard and burning.
I need relief from the present’s pain.
Take me to days for which I’m yearning.
Or drown the flames in soothing rain.
For life and death I have no care.
End the pain, oh passing wave.
Cleanse me of this wear and tear.
Through restoration, or quiet grave.
