The Breaking

Tossed aside one too many times,

Unpredictable to say the least;

Breaking past barriers and lines,

Like unleashing a ravening beast.


Angry and ever intensifying,

Making cautious all who are near;

Appearingly never subsiding,

Intentions obscure and unclear.


One moment, forceful and threatening,

Colliding and clashing with clamor;

Suddenly calm and relenting,

In a subsequently defeated manner.


Waves. they have a breaking point.

They must crash and hit land.

People. We have a breaking point.

But we get the chance to stand.
