The river calls to me

The river is deep
It calls to me,
The ground soft beneath my feet
I wander far past, trying to be free.

To the edge of the chasm I step.
I see the river, so deep below
It calls to me.
Dare I go?

Return to my safe nest?
Become the good, average person
They say this is my destiny.
The river calls to me.

I wish to be more than they say I can be.
The river calls to me.
I know I can be better than this.
The river calls to me.
I know I can make a difference in this world,
But not by following their plans for me.
The river calls to me.

I shall not be going home.
The river calls to me.
The chasm deep,
I dare to leap.

The river calls to me.
