The Turtle

There’s a turtle on the beach
She lies upside down
with her feet helplessly
up in the air, she seems lost

Oh turtle, what are you doing there?
Did the storm of your thoughts take you
and turned you around?

You looked at the horizon
and waited for the tides
to bring your beloved
You were full of hope

But then suddenly, you started to fear
that he wouldn’t come for you
that he would float
far away across another ocean

But dear turtle, you need to turn
around your thoughts
into positive ones
flip yourself over,
You need to trust
him, yourself, the tides, the journey

You are an animal of the water
and of the earth
Flow through emotions
Slow down your thoughts
and stay grounded
Remember your quality
of patient endurance
Remember the longevity
of true love
