Ebb & Flow

I sit, floating on the water
Cast adrift by my own self-loathing
Angry waves crash against my raft
Pushing me ever further away
I know I must paddle
But the water is cold and I am tired
Crashing and crashing
The water breaks through
I feel the salt on my skin
Energy and the will have escaped me
Collapsed in a heap with the sun beating down
I have no place to go

(I’ll go where the tide takes me)
