Life’s Waves


Swept out to sea by thoughts and fears
lost and alone swimming in tears,
The scent of wild roses the sound of wind in the grass
becomes a faint memory of the distant past

Waves come crashing in
sending shivers to the core,
the person I once used to be
I no longer recognize anymore

Exhausted and struggling
i’m pulled underneath,
then thrust in the air
waves under my feet

Catching the waves
all becomes clear,
sometimes you have to fall
to discover why were here

Trying to control life’s waves
will end in disaster,
learn to surf them instead
and become their master
