The Waves - Poem by Josey Alfred

The waves they roar and lash to break
The earth with brutal force to shake,
And force it to lie, below beneath.,
So as to kill its life and wealth.

Why does the earth restrict the seas?
What right has it, to sit on seas?
And to cut big sea, to lesser seas
And make Dead Sea; lifeless to be.

With verve to just, deluge the earth!
From time infinite, or from birth,
Seas forced the waves to sneak beneath
And burst the anchor rock of earth.

Bitter the sea sent spiral waves,
To crush the earth and drag to, grave.
To drown the earth to dump in filth,
But firm the earth, held on with faith.

As God bestowed both, equal rights!
Both should exist with peace, no fight!
But Seas forgets, often restrain,
And force its waves, with no restrain.

And so are we in this mad world!
We just fight on, to grab or hold,
“Comforts and power” to make all slaves!
And forget, we are bound by laws.
