The skies wide open and the air fresh as ever

A man appears content, though his thoughts are severed

The will to choose who, what, when, where and however

But to the fear of the deep blue, his mind is tethered

Swiftly rolling in, comes the inevitable storm

In a panic, he searches for the land he was born

Following the path of light, only still to feel torn

He reaches the house, but decides to break the norm

Time reveals truth as he takes a deep breath

The man realizes his vessel is all he has left

The face of the infinite wave reeks of death

The choice to end his own life, he now heft

A ship lost at sea contains the man who thought he was free

Burned down the lighthouse and sailed on to see

The price of freedom, his heart forever lonely

Eternally shrouded by the fog of regret and misery
