Oft I’d wonder how’d it be if I had chosen shore o’er sea

Oft I wonder how’d it be
If I had chosen shore o’er sea
Perhaps, if I’d opt not to flee
Would I’ve had felt the joy and glee?

Oft I’d thought how sunken deep
I’ve reached to fail a mighty leap
As, into dark, I slowly seep
The blinding sea puts me asleep

Perhaps, if I had chosen shore
I’d have got to feel the sandy floor
And see the mighty sun that soars
What but that would I want more?

I’d lift my head and look up high
The blissful blanket of the sky
But no! I’d kissed the shore goodbye
And in oceans deep I chose to hide

Oh, so oft, so oft, I’d wondered
I’d wondered how it’d be
How’d it be if I’d chosen
The shore o’er the sea

  3. Another beautiful poem! I am trying to understand the meaning hidden between these lines. What is the sea representing? Correct me if I am wrong, the sea is the depths of gloom and the shore is joy or happiness. The choices we make either takes us deep into the depths of darkness or the bright sunny shore. Is that what the poem means?
