Defiance

When the walls come closing in
And the ocean is much too deep,
When suddenly you feel lost in a crowd
And the only cure to loneliness is being alone,
When the saddest songs are the most beautiful
And fulfillment slips through your fingers like sand,
You feel like you can’t swim anymore
And when all your needs shake you to the core,
It feels easier to let the waves carry you,
Than to stand like a rock, unperturbed
And to let defiance be your shield,
Rather than your sword
