The Tidal Wave of the Mind
The force battling tomorrow’s sunbreaks
And yesterday’s night sky,
Forms a tidal wave of thoughts
Crashing onto the heart’s shore;
“Will tomorrow win?
Will peace, joy, and love prevail?
Or, will the dark sky of yesterday continue to surge,
Forcing walls to crumble, as the undercurrent,
Pushes and pulls the soul’s defenses.
The mind gives way to desperation,
When, from the north, a heavenly gust
Forces the gaze to lift and
Fragrantly fills the sea air,
The wind whispers, “He rules over the surging sea,
When life’s tidal waves begin to rise,
He and only He can speak, Peace!
For who is like God Almighty;
Who forms the ocean and the seas
And stills the raging storm within?”
