It moves with no vicious intent
But is dangerous all the same
Strong and powerful
Feeling the world’s motions.
Does Yemaja cry out again?
A tremulous Sea that knows the stillness of doubt and uncertainty
Blue and grey, with all the colours in-between.
The waves do not crash but push aggressive and elegantly
I’m sure she called me here immediately
To remember to cleanse my soul and view the world humbly
There is too much to try to grapple for a place in this world possessively.
Know your strength and feel the power of your waves beneath your feet.
Though the fear that moves through you, as your eyes view the waves, incapacitates you
Renders you speechless
And palpitates the strength in you
Remember, you have coursed these waves before.
Your heart was a ship that was once wrecked in battle
But now you have made your stern strong.
Time to end this fear of being slaughtered like cattle
Your battle scars are too right for your confidence to be undone.
