Lessons of the TideWe live and die as people, right?What's to say it's worth the fight?To blend in with the rest of this crowdTo be quiet, soft, never loud?You've been wading now, cursed with the brandThe one that no one will offer a handJust take mine, but I'll get the driftIf you want to stand without my gift.You've been trying so hard to get alongLying all the time to stay strongThis riptide current's got you inNow's not the best time to learn to swim.Trust me brother, it's okayTo drift into another dayStop going against the tideStand up and drift on with pride.
