One Lone Soul

One lone soul
Bobbing Oscillation on each incoming wave
Infinite blue ocean ahead transforms
Optimistic goals into the futility of expanse

One lone soul fighting ebbs and tides not for progress but experience

Hundreds watching from a packed summer beach
Sun seekers slathered in modes of sun protection
So close to the destination of their hundred mile journey

They cry and sweat and burn
In beach chair saftey

All their eyes trained on

One lone soul
