Drowning in possibilities
dependants without a pause
with all the money in the world
still hitched to the hidden clause

A life upon an inner sea
with limits to it’s sail
to drag it to the world wide sea
takes labour to prevail

though the distant shorelines beckon
the herd must all be fed
oh, to face against prevailing winds
takes courage to quell the dread

and when the storm clouds gather
stand up to the bracing gale
for in your soul it matters
it’s your time, is it up for sale ?
