Warning: this post has nothing to do with Valentine's Day.
I wrote this as I was staring out a window of a café, drinking a really good cup of tea. I realised it's very easy to be hard on yourself, and inspired by that thought I wrote The Tide. It's me basically saying, "you are stronger than you think". Which is very true; we all are stronger than we think we are. I suppose it's a case of believing in ourselves.
Also, I decided to use metaphor of the tide because the beach will always be my spirit home.
Happy Valentine's Day. Make sure to love yourself!

With your eyes beneath your feet.
