The only thing that is constant
In this world, is change itself
Spontaneous thinking , in an instant
And turning over a new leaf.
Said the siren , to herself as
She sat alone on the bank
It seems life always has
Given her opportunities, in black.
" No more pondering , today i jump"
The siren to herself, proclaims
The only way to get out of the slump
And the pain, this life claims.
She is on the boat now, adrift
Evn though she isnt sure
Whether the time had arrived
Whether it was time to be pure
She again lost control, and
Her mind started to wander
Re-visit her 'happy' place, and
Whatever she visioned her to be
Singing , day and night through
Remaining engrossed in the beat
Living in, around, off the music
Spell binding evryone in their seat
Returning home to find someone
Holding out his outstretched hand
An insatiable urge to learn
How good, she really can be !
Whether it was true, that
Something she could give him
In return for the attention
That blossomed in her every whim
That is what she really wants
The siren realizes it now
Not HE who walks out
When the boat is just adrift
Now that she returns to her mind
And sees that she has crossed
The lake that had seemed
To be endless and mossed.
The old bank now is far away
And she feels a reason , not to be afraid
To be brave, and happy
About how her life turned out
As the boat touches the shore
Apprehension still exists
In her mind, like before
She still is wanting more
Unfulfilment , which eats her soul
And cripples her mind, as a parasite
She now feels she has the might
To find someone who would fill that hole
Make her complete, with the song
And fondle her hair, ankle long
She gets up, confident with feelings
Of actually getting whatever there is
This is the new beginning
That she has been waiting for
Leaving the marred past behind
She looks ahead, and walks through the door.
SHE steps off.
SHE has seen the light.
