There comes a time when you have to stop thinking of yourself as the main character in your own story, but as the suppporting character in someone else's story.

Water water everywhere
and not a drop to drink
chemicals and pollutants:
they are to blame, I think

Water water everywhere
it dares not make a sound
simply rushing past my ears
and hoping I will drown

Water water everywhere
even inside my boat
the holes just kept on springing up
I could not keep afloat

Water water everywhere
a river of regret
pouring down inside me
making sure I don't forget

Water water everywhere
that is my point of view
as I huddle on the bottom
next to my sunken canoe
