    Confused from signs ,
    Hypnotizing so numb .
    Like stepping out of darkness ,
    Blinded by the sun .

    As focus starts to clear ,
    I see an oyster opening for the last time .
    A pearl is trapped waiting to be free .
    The oyster rolls so gently back to sea as I hear the moon whispers to the ocean .

    I didn't know it was a dieing shell and the last time it would breathe .
    I would never ignore help that's in need .

    Desperately I rush , and begin to search ,
    The waves are getting nasty , when they crash and burst .

    Throwing the sand around everywhere , , , it's in my eyes , I cannot see , which direction , I cannot leave .

    I sit on the shore as tears fall . How did I miss the signs . That's all I ever look for , are signs . This was the one , and I failed . The pearl will never be free ...

    As I start to get up and my focus clears ,
    I feel I've been repeating this for years .

    Confused from signs ,
    Hypnotizing so numb .
    Like stepping out of darkness ,
    Blinded by the sun .
