No More

I walk out into the waves
I look out upon the sea
The current pulling on my legs
The current pulling on my feet
No more! I say, no more!
I cannot live this way
With one voice calling me out to sea
And one voice calling me away

I walk back onto the sand
I turn and look upon the sea
The wind is pulling on my hair
The wind is pulling on my knees
No more! I say, no more!
It's hard enough to be brave
With once voice trying to drown me
And one voice that wants to save

Ocean, shore, I shout, no more!
I won't be pulled along anymore
Currents, winds, hopes and dreams
I refuse to ever bend my knee
I walk into the waves
The current has no power
The voice speaks through the rain
I laugh, I will never cower
