You are the sea...

You crash


You bash 


You smash 


You drive 


You writhe 


You scythe  


You wake


You break 


You peak 


You erode 


...then you retreat 


You build 


You carry 


You posit 


You marry 


You raise 


You drop 


You gift 


You sift 


You drift 


You wash 


...then you retreat 


You rise 


You fall


You peak 


You stall 


You barrel 


You swell 


You hook 


You rake 


You take


You shoulder 


...then you retreat 


You are the sea 


You have great force; you dictate so much. You have beauty; you have power. You are a gift to guide our day. 


But you are not limitless...


You see; even the sea ebbs and flows, it flattens and slows. It goes out after it comes in. 


Even the sea needs to rest. Twice daily. 


You have tides too. 


You need days of calm just as you need days of storm. But storm cannot be the norm. 


And just as you leave the beach to rest. You must rest from time to time too. 


It’s ok; I promise. You deserve it. 


No one questions the sea when she is calm they just comment on her beauty. 


You deserve that too; such that you may come back tomorrow with purpose and power and build a beach for me and for you. 


You are the sea...

(Some) explanation 



You work with incredible force and purpose yet rarely do you allow yourself to pause. You gift it to others but are unable to gift it to yourself. 


Eventually if you keep giving; one day you will have no choice but to take, or break, and I don’t want that for you. 


So remember. The power of the sea does not diminish when it ‘goes out’ it’s only resting, for a few hours, then it comes back, sometimes, even stronger. And no one forgot it was there.
