Reflection by the sea

Written by: Simmy Lee

Crashing waves of change
And lives of swirling tides
People who take hasty strides 
As they march outside their minds
They walk in their reflections 
In the soaked sea sand
They trample their afflictions
Into the crushed shell land
Their horizon only ever one step away
And not basking on the ocean’s edge
Where their world 
And their footprints
Have fallen off the watery ledge
Where breath bursts like bubbles
Strewn onto the shore
Where swells of the same swallow and spit out
Choices made before
And herald in the morning sun
The emptiness
Of all days done
