Stretching Beyond Our Handicaps

by Jesse James Doty



Stretching beyond a myopic view,
amid resurfacing gills
where our lungs once grew.
An amphibious being
embraces unique ways to rise above
what once was possible,
to become a sentient part of us.
Encouraging crusaders of like-minded individuals,
equipped, in an aqua-marine environment,
to dispel plastics or other toxins
that add to the destruction of our organic planet.
The choice is ours to grow past our handicaps.
Touching down on the bottom seafloor,
we can regain the ecstasy of hearing the ocean roar.
