Far out there

The horizon

You look at it

With eyes closed

It’s your threshold to pass

Far beyond in the distance – hope


You swim your way

From the beach and beyond

Trying to fight the waves

They keep pulling you under

Washing you back ashore

And the current – oh, the current…


Losing your strength

You slowly give in

Every inch you move is a struggle

The horizon fading away

As the sun sets

On your hope


The waves

The current

The sea

Swallowing you

Keeping you under

The dark – the sleep
