The pool of life is filled with danger

And with each stroke we take

It becomes stranger and stranger

 

 

We float because of surface tension

With no fear of what life brings next

The outside world, another dimension

 

 

As we dive the depths of life’s pond

We see and reflect on deeds past

And wish to fix what we see as wrong

 

 

The resistance of water holding us back

But if we can find the currents

We hope that life will get back on track

 

 

The pool is our world, hopes, dreams

Our knowledge is limited to this place

And escape is somewhat difficult it seems

 

 

The knife is the only way out of hear

But with it comes a responsibility of self

That is based on unfounded fear

 

 

As we fill the pool with crimson mist

We become that which we seek

By leaving the pool and removal from the list
