Breathe

Break through to the surface

Out of the norm

Stop holding your breath

Forget to conform

Don't stay under too long

You'll lose your heart

It's a pity to drown

Before you get a start

It's so hard to take a chance

When you're already molded

Into a cast of acceptance

Safely as not to be scolded

Coming out of the water

Straight into the dive

Now's your chance

To come alive

The rain is pouring

Time to brave the storm

Stop holding your breath

Forget to conform
