Changing tides

Photo by Tembela Bohle on

Know I’ve been taken

And I’ve freely given

With a certain clarity

That leaves no questions

But I do wear scars

I’ve become more than

A mere island to myself

Whereas I also became

The adjacent ocean too

And I’ve secretly launched

A million whispered prayers

On the fragility of ripples

That one might be delivered

And returned as…my answer
