Life is hard,
Life is difficult, even on a good day.
But there are days when you literally could scream
You are in pain, from the stress and despair that life throws at you.
And there is nowhere to turn
You feel you can’t stop
You can’t say no
As the world my just collapse around you!
Everything crumbling down into a pile as you walk away.
But sometimes just sometimes you need to escape.
Where better than the sea!
It is free,
One splash comes in, one splash goes out!
Nothing ever stays long enough to become a stress
Everything is washed away within seconds
And it is new again
A new breath of air,
A new wave of water and bubbles.
Always renewing always growing
Never knowing what to do!
Its purpose is simple,
The waves come in
The waves go out.
If you stand in complete silence
You can hear them talking,
Whispering their sweet nothings to one another as they pass in the vast open space around them,
Nothing gets their way and anything that does so be it
They move around it,
And if it’s too big
They destroy it!
There is nothing that will stop them
Working together back and forth
Back and forth
Silently and loudly throughout the day.
It doesn’t matter when you go,
In the summer,
The soft spray of water is refreshing, it makes you feel alive,
You feel ready to take on the world
The sea has cleaned you of all your worries.
In the winter, the wind flies around
Encompasses you in its work
It tugs at your breath and takes everything you don’t want inside you away
It cleanses you from the inside out.
You walk away feeling alive and free.
You feel ready to have another shot.
To have another go,
You wont be broken you are alive and refreshed
Ready for anything thrown your way!
