Get Up To The Sea by Gary R. Ferris
Though the journey is uncertain and the path not seen,
Full of obstacles, and the road not clean.
Most won’t leave and begin to chart,
They are too cautious, and think they are smart.
“We are better off here, where things are the same”,
“We know what to expect, we’re good at this game”.
The vision I gave you can be wed,
Take the first step and get out of bed.
Though fears and uncertainty will surely arise,
And the enemy is lurking, hidden in disguise.
Be not dismayed, or overcome with fear,
Though not seen, I am still here.
I cannot help unless you start,
Get up to the sea, and the waters will part.
