“You Can’t Command The Tide”

“You Can’t Command The Tide”

I just love this poem so much. Don’t let anyone control you or your happiness. You are the ocean and you are calm, when the wind comes along and tries to stir you up don’t let it. Don’t let the wind change you, you know your worth and who you are. They can’t “command your tide” and tell you what to do, you are in control of yourself so don’t let the wind get to you. Don’t be clay and let others shape you to how they want to be. You are water and nothing else can shape you but yourself. They can try but you will only slip through their hands, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. Be the one playing your own game, don’t be the game that other people get to play.


“Their words spun like a cyclone,Β 

Howling through the dark of night,Β 

Promising acceptance,

If you gave up all your light,

But block your ears my darling,

You are not a brittle stone,

This storm cannot erode you,

For you’re more than blood and bone,

You’re deeper than the ocean,

Both unstoppable and free,

And nothing can control,

The wild intentions of the sea,

So when they try to shape you,

Slip like water from their palms,

For wind should know it’s reckless,

To disturb the ocean’s calm,

You have the right to be here,

Every right to what you feel,

And the wind can howl forever,

But the ocean will not kneel,

So do not let them change you,

Send your waves out far and wide,

And let them learn the hard way,

That you can’t command the tide.” – e.h
