Love of water in everyone's heart,
Seeing the ocean is usually the start.
It draws people from near and far,
Just as dreamy as a distant star.

Sailing above much is unseen,
What lies below only a dream.
As of now much is unknown,
Can make one feel very alone.

In its whole a vast expanse,
Has seen much remembrance.
Ships and planes lost at sea,
Loved ones lost for eternity.

Forever alive and always changing,
Many delights and lots of warnings.
Most of us drawn to the seashore,
They’re some who chose to explore.

Marine biologists try their best,
Relying on their funding requests.
Inner earth they doth seek,
Trying to take a little peek.

Much is unknown but they don't care,
Yearning to explore where no other dare.
Among the Beauty thats all around,
Forgotten are the dangers abound.

Mysteries still surround the deep,
Treasures found you may keep.
Inner earth waiting to be discovered,
Many things still not recovered.

Not always finding what you seek,
It's not a quest for the meek.
Beautiful and mystical as our birth,
So is it with Inner Earth.
