Souls Always Striving We should return to the water . . . we were never really meant to abandon liquid, and the sight of a dark blue bay, surrounded by a tan pelvis of palm beaches lures us back to the ocean, the womb. Our genes are still tied to the water . . . our chromosomes will always yearn to swim, while our very eggs and sperm can only commune in the sea of our carnality. We belong in water, it's clear, and the daily loneliness we all feel in our chests, the loneliness of living, is indeed the memory of water fulfilling the cavities of our current lungs. We were never meant for air, our bodies mostly water, and our souls always striving to float a few succinct feelings to each other, feelings that always shrivel then drop to the ground, our souls appear out of their proper element.
