The Song Of The Conch Shell - Poem by Mark Heathcote

There are waves within waves
Meeting in collision
God is the same in that
Wherever you turn, you turn to him
Or he follows and gets deep under your skin.

There are waves within waves
Some of them submerge us
God is the same in that
His the first light that enters
Banishes the night & quietens our inner dissenters.

There are waves within waves
And each is like a rolling kiss
God is the same in that
He embraces every scrolling wave
That would run away fearing to be, saved.

There are waves within waves
And each one must be released
God is the same in that
He gives you the freedom to resist
But know his love for you will always persist.

There are waves within waves
There are sky storms as far as eyes can see
God is the same in that
He battles evil to calm the wind the sea
That drowns that surrounds you and me.
