May 2017
It’s hard, searching inside
Not seeing the glimmer
Of a flame that has died

Fate had its way
Life steered the course
As I floated the waters
Of fear and remorse

Peering through darkness
Hoping to see
Just a glimmer of light
A beacon for me

Guiding me safely to the shore
Of the piece and serenity
I’ve searched for before

But once again
Fate grabs my hand
And pulls me out
In the water again

I get so close
Then it happens once more
I’m floating in waters
So far from shore
Written by
unnamed
