The Tide

My emotions are like a tide,

one minute the nice, calming warmth of happiness is enveloping me,

and then the next minute the happiness drifts away,

back to whatever pool it originates from,

and I am left feeling something deeper than sadness or pain.

I feel a loss, a lonely ache, in my bones that I had just barely grasped the happiness I longed for

when it suddenly disappeared again,

and I am left wondering where it went,

through this long and rather depressing process.

I have realized one thing happiness is not stable,

happiness is fleeting,

because things are constantly changing around me,

as the tide comes and envelopes me again

this time I feel a searing pain that I know only comes from a creature of the ocean,

this time I know happiness will never last.

And just as I am about to become overrun with despair,

the clouds part,

the sun shines down on me,

and I realize, despite the pain, there is one thing that is constant

peace.

In spite of how much pain, sadness, despair, or loneliness I may feel there is always a steady and stable peace present in the back of my mind,

that reminds me that tomorrow will bring a new day,

a new tide,

and a new chance to feel happy again.
