SURROUNDED

I’ve always felt small when in the sea.

Paddling, swimming, floating. Insignificant in the vast stretch of ocean around me. The horizon of infinity, the mass of water, the crashing waves. I feel weak and helpless, the current stronger than I. The body of water enveloping my human body as I attempt to stay grounded, feet skimming the stones beneath me. Head just above sea level, I feel surrounded. Encircled. Safely enclosed yet simultaneously vulnerable. Carry me, water, I am at your mercy. I belong to you now.
