White Flag

Diving bravely into life,

unaware of what lies beneath deep water,

will I tread, swim or drown?


Raising the white flag,

dropping my armour and my sword,

treaty has been signed for battle I can’t win.


A will bent far too many times,

taking up foolish arms in a civil war,

time to make peace with the universe.


So I surrender…

hoping that the path before me,

will lead me back Home where I belong.
