Oh you water wave

The story and mystery of you
oh you water wave
seems un-understandable to me
I see you coming, rushing and hitting the shore
scattering and shattering into particles
ending up like nothing!
it feels to me as if the
beach sand seems to hold a secret
that you want to find
which wouldn’t be revealed too soon though
and oh you the water wave
you try to hit it hard, corrode it
to reach to its inner side
to know what it hides
it may take forever for the beach sand to reveal
for it holds the secrets and those answers in concrete

You surely corroded several rocks away
and made visible what was first invisible
may be this belief makes you feel
one day you could also reach to the beach sand
not everything will give in
oh you water wave
isn’t it strange that both of you
have been together since centuries
yet still beach sand has never trusted you
never opened itself to show you
what lies within itself
and oh you water wave
you keep on hitting it again and again
to know what it hides
to know beneath it what lies
it may take forever for the beach sand to reveal
for it holds the secrets and those answers in concrete
