Sea Of Life - Poem by Moore Hope

My mind is adrift a boat lost in the sea
With so much water around yet I am still thirsty

I see fins in the water just waiting for me to fall
To devour my soul, my body and all

I hold on tight fighting day after day
Yet hallucinations of my destiny are very dim and very grey

I think back on my life and wonder if it is worth all this fighting for
I have been through so much pain, I am afraid for what's in store

I curl up in a ball and gently I rock
The boat sways back and forth, floating, it never stops

When I finally get the courage to open my eyes
I am blinded by a bright light it is the end of my life burning in the sunrise.
