Beautiful Disaster

Seductive Sea

The sun is shining
And the sea
It beckons
So seductively

The waves looks a little rough
As they crash onto the shore
But I can handle them
As I have so many times before

Stepping into the water
It's colder then I thought
Unable to find
The pleasure I sought

I see Daddy on shore
And I realize
If I stay in these waves
They'll be my demise

Struggling to stand
Trying not to drown
Finally I get up
Only to be knocked down

Thrown under water
Crushed by the waves
Praying to
My God that saves

The waters subside
And I'm able to stand
And I start to head
Back toward land

But as I slowly
Walk toward the sand
I turn away
From the land

I see some friends
Swimming around
And immediately
I am that way, bound

I reach them
And we laugh for a while
But the coming wave
Wipes away my smile

I knew it would happen
But I went anyways
And maybe I'll learn
One of these days

Thrown under water
Crushed by the waves
Praying to
My God that saves

The waters subside
And I'm able to stand
And I start to head
Back toward land

But as I slowly
Walk toward the sand
I turn away
From the land

There is a boy
And he looks so fine
Standing there
Under the sunshine

I run to him
And he catches me
And for a while
We're happy

But he see's the wave
And leaves me there
Left all alone
With these burdens to bear

Thrown under water
Crushed by the waves
Praying to
My God that saves

The waters subside
And I'm able to stand
And I start to head
Back toward land

But as I slowly
Walk toward the sand
I turn away
From the land

A crowd of people
Beckons me
And I recognize them
As the temptations of society

They reach out their hand
And I grab on tight
Even though I know
Its probably not right

But when the wave comes
They disappear
Leaving me alone
With only my fear

As the wave swallows me
And there is water all around
I decide it may be better
To just stay down

Someone pulls me out
And carries me away
Speaking softly
I hear him say

“I love you, my child
My darling, my dear
Don't worry
Daddy's here”  

He holds me close
And kisses my forehead
Whispers “I love you”
And puts me to bed

I wake the next morning
And no one is home
So I head toward the shore
To casually roam

And the sun is shining
And the sea
It beckons
So seductively
