Tides Never Stay

Tides never stay

The sight of the beach is one that inspires thoughtfulness
A site of an ever surprising roaring calmness
And when the tides come ashore and ebb
It makes me wonder who is behind this life web
Suddenly I find myself here full of imaginations 

Life still continues to mystify me
Its mixture of illusion and reality
A clash of catastrophe and harmony
My own consciousness and my being
And the knowledge of what is and what is to be

In the mist of all this I am forever lost
Cuz my mathematics and science have fallen short
And my fathers and grandfathers are all gone 
But there is one thing I know for sure
That after the night will come the day
And when the tides come they never STAY

Kwame Duodu
