Sorrow is an ocean

In the silence waves hit


I see flashes of light

But not enough to stay lit


Happy strikes like lightning

But thunder follows soon


Clouds hide the light

I cannot see the moon


The tide is high

And it sweeps me under


I look up and see

Lightning before the thunder


I am treading water

But the current is so strong


If I take a break

I fear I won’t last very long


It’s dark and I’m lost

Which way to the shore?


I just don’t know

If I can tread anymore


It’s so cold and heavy

It’s dark all around


Maybe if I last til morning

I will be found
