Wave after Wave


Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.


Tide is high,

It's wave after wave

A never-ending story,

What is it we try to enslave?

The wind beneath the wave

Sometimes causes a sigh

Or sometimes we just look on to its glory,

Is it for relief,

Or is it in disbelief

I choose at times not to dwell

As in my heart

It won’t sit well

In a matter of time

Calm is the wave

The tide is low

We must be strong

We must be brave

We must allow to take it slow

Still is the waters

Low is the wave

Is this the time

For the path it will pave

I just need the patience

Take it wave after wave

It builds me up inside

Allowing me more resilience

Take it one step at a time, so many things happening at once. You don’t know where to start or when it will end, and stress on how to deal with aspects of life's events. It's overwhelming but it will get better just look to the bright side and it shall pass.

Hi Rajan

We are all re-evaluating life and have learnt many things be it a high or a low tide, especially from the pandemic.

Always appreciate your comment Rajan

Take care, keep well and be safe

Exactly, we need to take one wave at a time and we shall overcome all difficulties. I relate this poem to the current pandemic the world is facing, lying low for the moment and taking each step with care.

Hi Liz,

Uncharted waters, it's taken the world by storm.

Always appreciate your comments,

Be safe

This is an interesting analogy, especially as the rise in hospital cases of Covid19 is described as a tsunami. It does feel like we are all being battered by the waves.

Lorna Lamon on March 26, 2020:

An inspiring piece Mitara and perhaps we become stronger with each wave we survive. Let us hope so. Take care.

My good friend Ruby, I love hearing your words, and you have always captured the greater sense of the feeling and emotion that a writer hopes for all to see.

Always appreciating your comments

Your positive outlook is contagious. I feel relieved after reading your beautiful poetry. One day at a time.

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on March 25, 2020:

Yeah, and in more ways than one, we have all been thrown in the deep end and swam with the sharks.

We stayed afloat thanks to inspiring wonderful people paying it forward, so we can tell the tale

Remain awesome as you already are,

Always appreciate your comments Kyler

Hi Brenda,

It's now about looking forward, and having the strength to remain positive.

Your comments are always appreciated

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 25, 2020:

This is so touching.

Looking on the brighg side is what we all need to do in this turmoil we have today.

Thanks for sharing.

Kyler J Falk from California on March 25, 2020:

Truly, a wonderful way to look at the stress and events of daily life. Wave after wave they come, but if we give up swimming and surfing through them then we drown. Good thing for lifeguards, and all the wonderful people seeking to help us to stay afloat!

Amazing poem, Mitara!
