Into the Ocean


When you are scared, feeling small

When darkness falls, sinking you deeper into the ocean

You feel weary and frightened

You feel the waves take you down

You look for a coastguard

Something for protection


Let the waves come

Let the ocean sink you

For you are embarking on an adventure

Into the ocean

To end your sorrow


And one day you finally realized

With the values around you

And you began your journey

Today I shall push my boundaries

Today I shall shatter my limits

Today I shall be unsinkable

For you will never reach the other side of the ocean

without the ups and down of the waves

For the plunge

Into the ocean.
