Cleansing Ocean of Tears… By Toni L.A. Cross

 

Marred by the stress and by the pain

In this half-light, all alone

Mark of humanity blotted with stain

Hidden greatness gives a shuddering groan

 

Breaking down these temples

Built of clay and flesh

Clinging to rocks like barnacles

Tied up in a seaweed mesh

 

 Waves of eroding salt

Dragging away dead tissue

Dredging up a sandy fault

The heart of this repeating issue

 

Let this ocean of tears cleanse

View our planet through a new lens

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
