How long more can I hold on
to the lifebuoy?
A year, a month, a day?
I’m drifting too far
I don’t know where I’m going.
Will anyone tell my parents
I have tried holding on?
Every year, every month, every day,
I’m floating in the vast ocean of knowledge,
But now I’m drowning.
My grasp is slipping
I can’t hold on any longer.
The waves are strong,
but there’s always another wave even stronger.
A strength that I will never have.
I’m letting go
of this lifebuoy that does not give me life
to drown into the world of mine.
With no pressure to keep me afloat
in a world I don’t want to be in.
