I see it coming,
bigger than any I have seen before.
Can I do this?
It will engulf me,
I should walk away.
There will be more after all.
And then I feel it,
their eyes..watching and waiting.
Waiting for me to fail,
waiting so they can gloat,
waiting to say 'knew he didn't have it in him'.
I know now.. there is no going back.
Those eyes would haunt me forever.
There's only one way, the way ahead.
The waves are my friends,
ready to take me to new heights.
I just have to rise up to them
and I can..
There's nothing to be scared of.
