The Ocean

When I am in the ocean I feel complete.
It surrounds me like a huge blue-green blanket
When I am in the ocean, I feel complete.
It is like 300 million tears of happiness mixed 
together to form one ocean.
I can imagine living down in the beautiful ocean.

-Jennifer C.

I wrote this at a time when I was missing where I grew up. I lived near the ocean and this poem comes from remembering all the good memories made at the beach.


  1. Great poem, I can feel how much you miss the place where you grew up. Memories can never go away from us, memory is a good shadow which we all follow until death.

  2. I love the style this poem is written in. the way the ocean was describe make me feels like is world of freedom, just swam way from this world. Sounds amazing to me, but I only have one problem, I don't know how to swam so it would be the end of the world for me to live in the ocean. Overall this poem is extremely beautiful, and most of us, you want to live in a place that would make us happy and a place we can feel complete.

  3. This is a lovely poem. I can really feel the emotion behind it. I cam also imagine and hear the sound of the waves. Everyone has a place in their hearts where they feel happy. A place that is warm, inviting, and comfortable. A place where they feel complete which is filled with wonderful memories that will never fade away. I can completely relate to this poem as well. This poem is beautiful and has a nice flow.
