Favorite Quote:
when Life gives you lemons, squirt them in Life's eye, and see how much Life likes lemons then.

Take a breath
Make sure its deep
Brace yourself
And take a leap
Swim out as far as you can
Swim as deep as you dare
But soon you head starts to reel
When you realize there's not enough air
But by the time you realize
It's far too late
The darkness surrounds
You can't even see the light of day
Soon you're no longer swimming
But fighting to reach land
You've waiting to long to fight
Now you no longer can
You realize how deep you are
And that you no longer can breathe
You start to have regrets
But you can longer leave
Now there's no where else to go
But closer to the deep
You have two choices
Either just fall or take a leap

Interpret at will. It's a simile of life.
