Look Ahead

Skies gray bellowing away
Cries echoing at the deep sea
I'm sinking inside me, yet afloat
Worried whether I will be wiped out

In the cold unknown darkness
With no hand guiding me
My own thoughts are swept apart
Shreded to pieces is a lonely heart

But, I think I see a fading light
Is it an illusion, is it a disguise?
I let the light comfort me
Hold me against my waning will

I surge ahead with all my might
I fight against the raging tide
At the risk of being shattered
I ask - backward or forward

I alone must now decide
And -
I decide to look ahead.
