Relentless waves come crashing in.
I turn upside down and begin to spin.
No boat to dock. No lighthouse to guide.
Just a merciless moon rising the tide.
Cold. Wet. Dark. No direction to go.
Am I drowning in a sea of woe?
It can’t be. This is not the end of my story!
Wake up. See the sun. Horizon’s glory.
Paddle like a sailfish. Fight like the mako shark.
The flesh is weak but my spirit needs a spark.
Calm waves finally start settling in.
I am upright and able to balance again.
There’s a boat to dock. A lighthouse I can see.
The moon is asleep. I am almost free.
Warm. Dry. Light. A direction to go.
No longer drowning in a sea of woe!
It can truly be. This is the end of my story.
Thanks be to God. For He is my glory!
