War of waves

So deeply lost, in my ocean, and even deeper is my emotion. It drowns me slowely, in its waves, relentless for its many graves. Fighting to stay above it all, to tear down its wailing wall. My battle is on all sides, as I swim life's never ending tides. Can I endure the rough storm, engulfing my soul, in its form. My struggle is for all to see, the dark depth, of this dead sea. At last I find my heavenly shore, in him I trust, to end this war.

Hi John, the news over Christmas was so awful that I thought I could get my mind in order reading one of yours again and sure enough, it works! The whole world struggles with violence and we need to look elsewhere to find peace!
