Steel Yourself

Steel yourself, for the tide will ebb and flow, 
Not to lunar dispositions

But to the gravity of the sorrow in your heart.

Stand steady, for if not they shall sweep you away
Overwhelming, they will hold you close
And drown you in their embrace.

Stay strong, for only will and fortitude
Shall stay these resilient waters
From breaking through and flooding your core.

Be wary, for the tide is certain to swallow you,
And there is little you can do,
But decide to go in pieces or whole.
