‘The tide’ – Promote Yourself


The tide, it wishes to take me away

And I, I long to be taken

To be carried away, swept up and freed

Freed from this endless vacation


So tempting it is, to be lifted, cleansed, removed

To run from this resistance

But what starts as peace, always ends in pain

Bruised and battered. Torn and impatient


Lies can be truth and truth can be lies

The ocean behind can’t be undone

So the choice, you see, is no choice at all

Persistence will be the only freedom


– CarlyLou

Kind regards,
