my waves are ones of inconsistency
they travel along my body
with no purpose
but to show my beauty
when you ride my waves, they start to settle
as if the tide never started
then I see your eyes
pierce through them
and the flow begins again
my waves become mountains
ones towered with insecurities
then I think these are not beautiful
and I feel as my waves are all you see
then I wait
and remind myself that flat land and high land
shore or waves, I'm still okay
I remind myself that the creator wouldn’t have made mountains or oceans
unless there were supposed to be highs and lows
and I think
my waves are ones made of inconsistency
they may haunt me
but my waves overpower negativity and become beauty.
