Oceans Of Water - Poem by Liam Hughes

Oceans of water from which you cannot drink
A racing mind with which you cannot think
Dust filled eyes you're unable to blink
Fleets of ships that only burn and sink

From the moment that you begin to cry
Endless tears given no chance to dry
You believe the truth but also the lie
Every question seems to be why

Where you stand is where you're meant to be
The sights you view are the things you're meant to see
Take up every chance to live unchained and free
‘cause you only end in a metaphorical tree

The distance to travel seems longer before the start
That and the finish line will seem further apart
Look after your head but don't forget your heart
Never-mind if the truth upsets the apple cart

Peace will make it harder for you to live in fear
When the time comes you'll know the direction to steer
Away from the shattered windows in which you used to peer
Away from the noises that used to damage your ear
