Why is it I have so much emotion?
It seems it runs as deep as oceans.
It sweeps me over like the morning tide,
I feel it like waves crashing inside.
Sometimes it's high,
Sometimes it's low.
It takes me wherever it wants me to go.
It tosses me around like a storm out at sea,
Whether it’s high or its low,
It won't let me be.
I feel the emotion,
I fight it inside,
Yet it pulls me under like a raging rip tide.
I search for the shore,
The calm and the rest,
It seems deep emotion is my life vest.
I float right along in the current of life,
As emotions cut deep like the blade of a knife.
And so my emotion,
Just like the sea,
Are unpredictable and free.
