I Am the Ocean

Na/GloPoWriMo Day 17 and the challenge is to write a poem from an unusual perspective.  What if a drop of water thought it was the ocean itself?…

I Am the Ocean
by Michael Romani

I am the ocean
I am the ocean
I am the ocean

The drop of saline water said
Unable to get it out of his head
I am and because I am I am all
His significance of place 
He did not even slightly recall
But his pride he would gladly embrace

I am the ocean
I am the ocean
I am the ocean

I am the first and the last 
I the future and the I am the past
The shape of every buoyant wave
The saline of every watery grave
I am all seeing and all knowing
I am all of this and ever flowing

I am the ocean
I am the ocean
I am the ocean

I am the alpha and omega of devotion
Every thought, feeling and emotion
And in being the all I am divinity
It's present in ever single trace of me
Before me all obstacles wash away
Warmly sung on every summer's day

I am the ocean
I am the ocean
I am the ocean

The ocean looks upon the tiny water drop
Smiling and respectfully asks him to stop
Are you all or just another bit of me
Open your eyes, it's very clear to see
You are not any wholeness of divinity 
But just another drop in the cosmic sea

You are not the ocean
Just because you are wet
Your pride feels this devotion
But please never forget
You are no more the ocean in all of its might
Than I am the God of truth and light
