Epiphany on the Beach – Kevin Strang
Epiphany on the Beach
I stand and ponder from beach shore,
Depths of my soul I reach for;
Along lava rock swoops a great wave,
If I were under its crash it would be an early grave,
The swells keep coming with much persistence;
It makes me wonder about my own existence.
Gazing up, the sun’s rays cascade on my face,
When I meet my demise, someone will just take my place;
Out in the sea are endless hues of beautiful blue,
I doubt I will be so remembered when my time is due;
As I view, I can feel surf bang against my legs,
Reflecting on the past, a deeper meaning my spirit begs.
Now my being is getting shorter for my time on Earth,
In all my life there seems such dearth;
The courage to change occurs to me in this cove,
The wisdom of life has to be selfless love;
For eternity I shall abstain from the ways greed,
Forever, I will help the suffering of those in need.
What a joy, spirit to do things so great,
I’ll repent of my ways and hope for Heavens gates.
