A poem of letting it all go and with the flow


Sitting awhile

Quietly, peacefully

The sea rippling

The waves so calm

But beneath there is a rippling

Flowing heaving

Curling, swirling,

Riptide pulling

Sucking everything in its path

Way down deep, deep

In the depths of the oceans be

Wherever it goes it flows beneath

A rotten stagnant life full of woes

Where nothing can be real

But life is real

It tosses, turns and churns

Our lives upside down

Like a riptide way deep inside

The fear, the anguish

The panic, the pain

A love tossed aside

Way deep inside

Whilst I sit here I am letting it go

Flow, flow with the riptide

But this riptide I am in control
