Sea of Stories

We’re living in a sea of stories, a mixture of beautiful tales, consciousness flowing through the writer’s feather, scribbling down the soul's song.

A never-ending story, feeding itself through each new phrase—on fire, just waiting to be told.

Well known or anonymous, a narrative of someone’s’ life, the majority never heard of before.

Famous pieces are retold over again, but there are the ones unexplored, hidden deep down, that nobody ever saw.

Untold stories, filled with magical content— too sad—envisioning pure gold, resting secretly on the ocean floor.

Each moment gives birth to a new and extraordinary tale, constantly ready (the realization of departure one day), an eternal chronicle continues with each new writer born.

A novel, ever-expanding, and evolving through itself.
