Untie my hair and bury me at sea.
Let my locks flow around me as the waves drag me under.
Down past legends of mermaids and shipwrecks and creatures we are yet to name.
Let me be free, let me rest on the seabed.
Do not worry for me anymore.
You will see my rage in the storm as I batter the shore.
You will see my smile and my calm as the sun hits the surface with a blinding glare.
And you will feel my loving touch as you hold a smooth pebble in your palm.
I have cried my salty tears, but I shall live forever.
I shall become the ocean, I shall become at peace.
