To run and risk or walk and wish
Which of these paths shall I choose?
Safety, security, a sound little life
Or dreams full of things uncertain?
They say "stay here close by the water's edge
You're sure to keep a roof over your head"
But deep down inside how I want to be
Uncautiously drifting out to the sea
What kind of life will slowly arise
From a road short of it's passions and pride?
Provision on one path is dancing along
But how will I move without a clear song?
My heart is at war
My brain loudly screams
"Will you pick the right door?"
There are few people out there
Straddling this ledge
You won't find much company
Saying, "go on ahead."
So in the end
It's all up to me
Will I stand by still waters
Or swim in the sea?
Life's full of choices
Both good and bad
But I'd rather reach higher
Than wish that I had.
