tossed by the stormy waves, contradictory,
lost in the depths of the ocean of history,
frosted by years and the cold sea of tears,
loaded with layers of pain, and of mystery.
hot with the fires of remembered rejection,
fraught with deep holes of vanished perfection,
searching the waves to find only graves,
naught but the cold winds of inner reflection.
escape comes, with joy, and a turn of the key,
landscapes of future lives rise from the sea,
shining and light to brighten the night,
capes of forgiveness and cliffs of the free!
