Once I tossed my cares faraway. I saw it crash and roll with the waves As I drifted off silently, Obstinately ignoring all that I am. But when the skies turned grey and vengeful, And the seas, harsh and unforgiving, The salt in the air and in my mouth, In my hair, and in my blood, Swore to drag me away, From the sweet, sweet bliss of ignorance.
Sweat breaks, Silence rings loud and vehement. Shards of glass leaving trails on my skin, Seeking comfort and libations, To fill this gaping void. Oh the storm raged, As I stubbornly tried to forget, my encumbrance.
We eagerly wait to be the kite, That flies freely in the wind. But tethered are we, to this curse, That is adulthood.
