Second Time Around - Poem by Jena Massabni

There's a light from where I came from,
But I can't turn back around.
There's a change in the wind,
But my tiller's all jammed.

As our skin gets lighter and your eyes grow colder,
We're sailing through uncharted waters once more,
But maybe i'll be better this second time around.
Sure, I'll be better this second time around.

Fishing for life by ending another,
Bitter comfort in heat and darkness.
You can no longer have one without having the other,
My stomach's in knots from this harsh wind's caress.

Set me free by letting me stay,
I don't want these winds to keep pushing me away.
Chain me up by letting me go,
To land and life and everything I know.

As our skin gets lighter and your eyes grow colder,
We're sailing through uncharted waters once more,
But maybe I'll be better this second time around.
Sure, I'll be better this second time around.
