When life takes you by rude surprise
Despite all safety checks
Shocked and numbed
Paranoid with fear
When you can’t understand what’s going on
When you’ve been pushed and pulled from all sides
When all your plans come to a screeching stop
When every door to escape is locked
None seem to open
When the water’s gone way above your head
That sinking feeling
When you’re drowning in the deep
And all out of breath
When all your strength’s long spent
When you’ve given every ounce of fight
And you still find yourself stuck
In a serious jam
Holding on for dear life
No one can hear your screams
The end seems near
I will not go quietly into the night
I will find a way out
I will keep pulling at the chains to set myself free
Even amid crashing worlds
Running out of time
I will die trying!
If need be!
If need be…
“…Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
