Cry, fear not, though echo looms
Thunder, in the distance, booms

Relax, as quietly, night resumes
This time you can’t restart

Let the moment linger, slowly
Let your feelings embrace you, wholly
Just for you, and you alone, solely
Hear the beating of your heart

Louder, drown the fears, reshape
No longer shall you crawl, nor scrape
Your cowardice you must escape
Make the demons inside you depart

Show them all who is the one
Let them know their time is done
In this whirlpool you have spun
Your demise, as you fall apart

Drifting deeper, you breathe no more
As darkness opens one more door
And water flows more than before
Their will, you did impart…
