With the Tide and the Sunset

I cannot be awake
for nothing looks to me as it did before,
Or else, I am awake for the first time,
And all before has been a mean sleep.
Walt Whitman

There are those who fight against the light
until they can fight no more
They weary themselves with their God-given right
’til they’re carried on waves to the shore
but they go out with the Tide and the Sunset.

We all need to feel that we’re in control
our choices ours alone
If freedom is the only right we’ll extol
write this down in stone…
we’ll go out with the Tide and the Sunset.

    Grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change,
    the courage to change the things I can
    and the wisdom to know the dfference
