Swimming in this sea of come and go
A ship came sailing through
But it had a heart hole.
I had two roads to go.
Either escape on this one to the port
Or let it drown too with my life’s woes.
Hold my hand and pull me close
I have a choice to stay or to let go.
It is my savior, my hope
I carry on mesmerized by all the glory and the gold
shinning in the darkness of my soul.
Its warmer inside
I feel tilted and toiled
to leave the familiar behind.
Change has always been a big risk.
Its a never-ending ride.
For the better? Or the worse?
You never know.
You never know, child.
Close your eyes and breathe the aura inside.
