My eyes are open
and staring at the horizon.
Thinking of yesterdays
that seem so far gone.
Days when I thought
I was good enough to make it.
Instead, from this world
I have taken hit after hit.
I didn’t bite more than I could chew
it’s been forced down my throat.
Now I’m in the ocean
with a hole in my boat.
I’ve been busy bailing
as fast as I can.
Praying that someday
I will again see land.
It’s filling too fast
my boat starts to sink.
What do I do
there’s no time to think.
I look into the water
looks like today is the day.
I jump into it’s depths
the current takes me away.
