To dwell in the silence, down under

The calm waters, below the waves

Surrounded by coral reefs, colors

Of the sea, and the inhabitant fish

Basking in the flow of the rippling tides

Where they can quietly swim about

Oh, yes, freedom, freedom from

The reckless and uncaring, the

Human factor, dehumanized beings

When, alas, I realize, as I sum it all up

I would rather drown in beauty

Than live in the ugliness of mankind
