-Alice Paul in Iron Jawed Angels


The ocean roars
and once again
lashes out with another wave
the beauty and mystery
soon replaced
with anger and disgrace
how did she let it get this far
how can she stop him now
the ocean roars
and once again
lashes out with another wave
she protects what she loves
letting them have the life boat
while she's tredding water
just to keep that next wave
from pulling her under
the ocean is so much bigger
than she is
the ocean can last forever
and it's waves keep repeating
she knows she's stuck there
but is thankful she can swim
she almost reaches shore
when the under tow pulls her in
then the ocean roars
and once again
lashes out with another wave
there's no lifeguard now
no one to tell her she'll make it
but all the while looking for a lighthouse
that one last beacon of hope
and just before she sees it
the ocean pulls her under
and she feels that she is drowning
its too late now
its too late now that
the ocean has roared
and once again
lashes out with another wave
against her stinging skin...
don't let your ocean take control of your life.
