Set adrift on an ocean of memories
Washed by the waves
To the middle of nowhere
In the middle I stay
With no idea how I'll pull through
The shore behind me beckons me to come back
And I feel a hollow ache in my heart
How did I drift away
From a shore where I felt so safe?
Once upon a lifetime,
A time not so long ago
I thought I'd stay
At that shore forevermore
But in a heartbeat, everything changed
I felt myself being pulled away
One wave after the other
I tried to fight
I tried to swim back
But the waves were much too strong
And I had to surrender myself
To the flow of the waves
From a distance,
I could see another shore
It wants me to move on
And look back no more
I know I can't stay adrift forever
I have to choose
One shore over the other
Which one?
Where to go
I simply don't know
I'll just let the waves
Take me to my destiny

We must never permit the voice of humanity
within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.

--Albert Schweitzer

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
