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.
