An Elemental Force

The ocean represents revolution to me. The ocean constantly struggles against the shore trying to encroach on society on the other side. However, it can only rise up and overcome the shore during tsunamis and hurricanes. At this moment the ocean revolts and lays waste to society on the other side yet it is only temporary; ,eventually the ocean recedes leaving humans to make sense of what remains. Revolution does the same. It tears up the foundations of society and leaves the survivors to make sense of destruction. It is intermittent yet forever. The ocean is a tireless force while Revolution is an inexhaustible hope.
