What the Sea Cannot Cleanse

The sea cannot cleanse the darkness within, for it is rooted in something far deeper than the soul.

The sunset cannot burn away all the memories, for they scar in places where nothing else can reach.

The clouds cannot obscure the dim flame still burning, for when there is nothing left to hope, it lights the way.

The rocks cannot anchor that which longs to fly free, for there is nothing able to hold down the spirit.

But the waves, they can tow you away to places you'd never dreamed. They can cause you to lose yourself in their swirling white foam, or let you dream in their deep azure reflections, or bring you to peace when they crash against the headlands.
