My tide ebbs and flows,
ebbs, leaving snails and seaweed high and dry,
flows, slipping and surging across the rocks,
in perfect harmony.

My emotions ebb and flow,
ebb, grief dripping out in endless tears,
flow, love zipping and oozing to every cell,
fills me up.

My people ebb and flow,
ebb, contracting to reject or integrate changes,
flow, expanding your willingness to learn, accept, invest,
in who I am evolving to be.
