Here I stand on a distant shore
Weary, worn, and broken
From bridges burned and words unspoken.
The path I walked was a lonely one
Filled only with silence
And a singular reliance.
Here I stand with nowhere to go
Staring out to the sea
Dreaming of a new way to be.
Filled with hope for the very first time
I walk carefully into the surf
Seeking the road to my rebirth.
The water washes away
All my suffering and all my pain
Which have long been my life’s bane.
Under I go
But only for a moment
To rise clean and free from torment.
Light in heart and free in soul
I walk once more towards the shore
Not the person I was before.
