All That I Am....Blank Verse Sonnet

Vast is the sea that carries me forth
From inland cliffs thro' ocean waves
Awash with emotion towards my fate
Here at the foot of the deep sea bed
I am none other than a pebble.
Down I float within a darkened abyss
Where I cannot see speak nor hear
Nor see the sun moon nor stars above
Nor shall I breathe the salt sea air
For I am only a grain of sand
Here do I lay so long now forgotten
From past turmoil 'neath the sea bed
I that has survived the great storms
But all that I am is driftwood.
