Caught in a Wave

crashing-waves

I am caught in a wave
that can not halt,
in a tide that sucks
me up, up, up,
then dashes me
down again.

I ride the wave with a
scream of ecstasy
and fear, waiting to
be terminated against
the rocks, then sucked
back out to sea again.
The moon commands
her cycles which leave
me without choices.

Though life leaves me
battered at times, within
lies a pearl of serenity.
I need only open my heart
to claim this treasure,
for what is external soon
passes; that which is
internal lasts forever.

  1. The two lines, “Though life leaves me battered at times, within lies a pearl of serenity” really speaks to me. Life can be so challenging, and in those challenges we usually find the beauty. Lovely poem!
