The ocean calls from beyond.
Little boat, with its long oars,
Ready to be taken for a sail;
As they await you by the shore.

It’s upon you to mount this boat,
Leave behind this so called life.
Come aboard, the ocean calls to you,
To escape from life’s piercing knives.

Your life so far, a grieving symphony.
You deserve another chance at recovery.
Come aboard, the ocean calls to you.
Your future waits, sail ahead to rediscover.

The ocean swoons you from beyond.
Free yourself from the bonds of fear and shackle.
For it is time to start, a journey afresh.
Oh, to be young again, is indeed a life’s miracle.

P.S: A second chance at rediscovering one's life, could be anyone's dream.

    @Stafford Ray, I didn't meant it to be tragic sir. But you can't deny everyone thinks of redemption at one time or the other.
