Currents, Tides and Waves

the temperament of the sea
can only be so much blamed
on the words i speak,
the breath i exhale
in delivering my speech,
the waves of the ocean
do not rely on me
for how they will behave
when the meet a far away beach,
the corners of the pacific
the edges of the arctic
the shallows of the indian
or the darkness of the atlantic
all are indifferent 
to the likes of me.
