Melville asked no compassion of the sea.
Roll to and fro, forgotten in my wrack,
Love as you please - I owe you nothing back.
I truly love this poem; I came across it in my reading the other day and fell in love with it immediately. It just reminds me that we're all human. I don't know why, but it does. It reminds me that everyone goes through good times, bad times; everyone feels hard done by at some point in their lives. Its how we wish to end these bad times that count, and how we manage to move on.
