  a drop in the ocean
a swift gliding motion;

some things that i long for
may just be pushed out the door

although im only me
which is the only thing i can possibly be

i now understand,
the only thing i demand;

And you may not know
because it doesnt quite show

i live for todays
and leave behind yesterdays

I enjoy simple things
like rippling pond rings

when the little neighborhood rebels
throw sleek, smooth pebbles

all i ask for
is a little bit more

not only from you,
but from life, too

just remember that
i'll know, for a fact,

that soon, you'll ask more from life, too
if that, is the last thing
you'll ever do.
