Somewhere in the deep
and rushing of the sea
come the waves that break and tear
and counter our beliefs.

Oh, the wrestle beneath the veil
no matter how we guard our heart.
It's not a flaw within our frame
but the design right from the start.

'Tis funny how coming to life
Can even feel- a threat.
But it's the twisting and the pressure
that IS how we beget.

We may try to toss the aches,
or cover them by whirl.
But the grit of life surmounted,
is oft our greatest pearl.
