LIFE IS LIKE AN OCEAN
Life is like an ocean, it ebbs and flows.
Great tides of wrath; heavy, foamy
Crash on the shores with their relentless surge,
Bringing their sorrow, pain and blows.
Life is like an ocean, its boundless power
Ceaselessly lapping, edging ever closer
To the shore with its bittersweet harvest of
Harmony or grief for us to devour.
Life is like an ocean, one minute harsh, mighty,
The next, a gentle, purring kitten lapping
The rippling sands of life with a never ending
Surge of uncompromising love from the Almighty.
Life is like an ocean flowing inexorably round and round,
Never ceasing in its unyielding, ruthless
Cycle of healing, regrets, sadness and hurt,
Offering comfort when harsh choices abound.
Life is like an ocean, it ebbs and flows,
Giving sway to our souls, washing away deepest fears.
Ripples of gentle waters bringing calm and peace,
Endless, insistent, fierce whisperer, on it goes.
