The Wave


A wave of serenity rises desperately from the ground

Stretching and yearning for a life unbound


The way she begins to roll, lurching further to the shore

Warns all those swimming, she is ready to roar


As she rises and reaches, she comes to a peak

Down she now tumbles, ruthless, and offbeat


The white foam she now creates shows her fury is unhinged

Out of control, she feels her course coming to an end


As she hopelessly rolls on, feeble and fragile,

She feels her weakness is almost palpable


Finally she realizes, her journey has come to a halt

However, the ending is one of which she never thought


Rather than clinging helplessly to the shore

She rolls on back to the ocean once more


Now that she has struggled and made it through this trial

This wave now knows, she can come through with a smile
