Do I want to walk alone
Or is it just another facade
Of my subconscious mind
Like the sobs l hear
While l refuse to bow down
The smiles smeared with wit
While I stay hungry for the word

Can l call you out any time
Being aware of my indulgence
That the road is not that wide
For me to hold a hand

For I know this with all my heart
Falling down to get up
Learning to swim without drowning
Drinking down without sipping
Creating lores
Struggling with dreams
I sit idle by the sea shore
Ready to take that
Final
my very own plunge.
