I went to the beach everyday
On the messy sand I lay
I liked the breeze, I liked the blue
The sea invited me to drench me in its hue.
I played, with the water I swayed
But I stayed away.
I went to the beach everyday.
A year — two, three, almost ten
I didn’t still enter in and exclaimed ten! when the sea exasperatingly asked when
I went to the mountains too
But to the sea, I never paid my due.
Years went by in whole
And the sun, growing hotter now, had parched my soul
It had been a while since I had been to the beach
This time the blue seemed brighter, and as before, within my reach
The sea invited me again and I excitedly leapt
But, by a gush of anger-laden waves I was swept
I suffocated till I tremblingly found my way out to the shore
Ashamed at its waves, the sea profusely apologised; but I was numb in my core.
Since then, I have run to different beaches; but the waves continue to betray
So now I’m running away.
