I
try and 
reach the
shore, only to be
swept again into sea
full of life and joy. But, 
all I care for is a shore 
where I can be just one 
striped engina, nothing,
but, a striped enigma.
I float, I push hard 
against the waves, 
wanting to reach 
the shore, for,
I am tired
of being
 pushed,
 pulled, 
tried by
the 
sea.


*As a part of NaPoWriMo. #19
