Poem #10 – People

People are like waves,
they come and go,
and they never stay,

People are like the tides,
rising to great heights,
receding back into the depths,

People are like fishes,
swimming endlessly on in shoals,
winding fluttering swarms,

People are plural,
plurals like the seas,
connected and always moving,

People shape the earth,
like water shapes the rocks,
carving out a new space and edges,

People are perception,
seeing is believing,
the seas are rising,
and the seas will swallow us all.
