1/13/14: Sunrise Poetry

A tides tale

The waves they tell a tumultuous tale
Of mermaids and seamen and the navy regale
Sometimes they crash and sometimes they flow
Stirring up sand wherever they go

Just like a mother they’ll coo you to sleep
Waking you up like a lover in heat
These waves they can be both enemy and friend
Without ever knowing where the ocean will end

The endless expanse gives some reprieve
From all of the things we aim to achieve
Because this we can’t control everything we see
The only thing I can I’ve realized is me
