Forever born upon the Sea of Sexuality.
The intensity of Her threatens to destroy me,
yet She gives constant birth to he who I am.
The sun pushes up
through the steaming waters
and warms my moulting soul;
dries my body
and shapes my fresh frame.
And again the Sea’s neverending rage returns;
stripping me of my identity;
swallowing all but my love for Her,
for it is within
the blackness of Her storms
that I am most alive
and prepared to survive Her fury.
Again the sun appears
and again a new and eager storm is upon me
and again I am born upon the Sea!
My wrathful and unforgiving Mother;
ceaselessly giving birth
to who I am.
To who I was.
To who I will be.
