Scars

They cut her deep
She was so young and naive
She couldn’t restrain
Mothers danced and made merry
This would make her strong on this journey
At least they thought

Years gone by, the scars still remain
Her seams begin to crack
Nothing to hold on to
She’s been held hostage by a ritual
She’s been bruised and broken
By this psychologically tainted philosophy

Every night is a reminder
Of this never ending horror

The gentleness of his touch
And tenderness of his caress 
Brings back ugly memories…

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
