Ocean

Published March 17, 2013 by ashleyhannelore

To call upon the ocean
To see its crashing waves
To hear my heart’s quiet notion
Is to say that danger saves

Ferocious waves drowning me in lies
All I need is the shore, the truth
But in the moment I’m being baptized
… And I realize, the shore never wanted to soothe

Step foot into the sea of people
Fierce eyes waiting for a plea
A cry for help, searching for a steeple
Yet only finding piles of debris

 Ferocious waves drowning me in lies
All I need is the shore, the truth
But in the moment I’m being baptized
And I realize, the shore never wanted to soothe

I was merely being deceived
In this uncontrollable world
Everything I’ve recently believed
Is gone and washed back onto the shore

Ferocious waves drowning me in lies
All I need is the shore, the truth
But in the moment I’m being baptized
And I realize, the shore never wanted to soothe

Everything I’ve recently believed
Is gone and washed back onto the shore
Because in the moment
I was being baptized
