This tumult of emotion
Pulling me under
Overwhelming me
Like a ship with a broken rudder
Steered by the wind
Rocks of melancholy draw perilously near
And the ship sails beyond my control

Why do I feel so stretched?
Being pulled in different directions
By feelings, like undercurrents
Forces beyond my understanding
With no purpose
And no end in sight

Still I follow this winding road,
Knowing not where it takes me
Leaving my burdens behind
Letting go

All I carry is a glimmer of hope
That one day it would make sense
And the seas would be calmer
The wind in my sails
Driving me to safe shores
