The tranquility of the sun's rays eminating
Across an uncharted mouth of water
Shows no signs of mercy
Yet serves as a mere tatalization
Of what is alarmingly out of grasp
For you have just awakened
Only to discover yourself lost
Within the expanse of a turbulent sea

Life is going to plummet you into an ocean
Which functions all together by it's own decrees
Your lattitude dubiously alters to it's longitude
As the currents vice like intensity
Aimelessly carries you far from
The secure path in which one
Believes they were going to venture
The higher you reach,
The further you shall sink

The raging sea shall only persist the more we resist
Upon  this revelation  I surrender to the tide
For you can only flow, or tangle against the inevitable
Awestruck I observe others
Who have mastered how to swim

We are ever fearful of being immersed
Into an unknown sea throughout life
However  we somehow manage to stay afloat
So take each other hand in hand
Compassion with understanding
At present, our destination lies unforseen
Yet within the distance land pervails
There a new plan initiates

And so...............

We begin to swim..............................................
