I keep  waiting

Waiting for life to get easier

Waiting for it all to simplify

I'm waiting for an epiphany

But what if it never comes?

What if I don't get struck by lightning

What if my world doesn't change 

in a heartbeat, like I hope it will?

What if I always feel this way?

What if the foundation's always sand?

I'm keeping hope alive

But what if it won't hold?

I wonder what will happen

When the tide comes rushing in.


I'll push it back

With everything I have.

I know the tide will rise

But so will I-

So will I.
