Like Our Own (Alone)

You are not alone

I am not alone

In the end, what we all want

is to look across that vast ocean and see a mind that is like our own

to know that there's a reason to keep swimming

to know that there's something worth swimming to

 

The trouble is

to achieve these things

we must have the courage to leave on shore that which weighs us down

For if we don't we will surely drown

be washed away by the currents and forgotten

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world

I wrote this several years ago, but never shared it. I always wondered what others might have thought of it.
