The Reluctant Surfer

The Reluctant Surfer – –

The reluctant surfer i used to be
scared of the storm and the waves i see
the water looks deep and the height is steep

Avoiding it , i thought i’m a wise man
so i just stay on the beach
and build my castle on the sand

But even on the shore, the waves swept it all
can’t believe, i thought it’s safe
when i build some walls

So i look for surfboards
and try to ride
the waves that come
and learned from the tide

The fear from the fall
and the pain that it brings
when one is too slow for paddling
and wave breaking

Slowly as i passed
the eye of the tide
and survived the waves
that almost blinded my sight

I stand up all wet
and teary eyed
wiser this time
as the tide subsides

The reluctant surfer
i used to be
gone is the fear
and i’m finally free.
