BROKEN SYMMETRY

Sand spins in and out of my toes
Like a million tornados
Erupting upon my feet
Hard sea floor appearing and
Disappearing around me
Ocean ways define my stability
Holding me unbalanced
A constant state of broken symmetry
Wondering if some always feel like this
Uneasy in the ocean waves

BROKEN SYMMETRY

Holding me unbalanced
A constant state of broken symmetry
Wondering if some always feel like this
Uneasy in the ocean waves
