Seashell by Skayla

October 31, 2016



The oceans waves and breaths of salt enveloped me and so my colors changed

A white so pure it came from the pearls now infused with the colors hidden in the ocean

I’ve been through a journey that would take you a lifetime and your afterlife

Unexplainable sights I’ve seen untold stories i keep

I’ll gleam before your eyes and be smooth under your touch

With every bump and curve on my figure lies an encounter with a friend or a threat

I’ll ponder and sit for there’s nothing more to do

How did I end up here?

My colors changed and so has my life

My original home long gone I now lie here in your palm

I am a part of the sea, I have swam with the fish, and hidden with the prey

I am a seashell
