Once The Captain (1/2018)

I was once the sand
Carrying the sea.
And every sleepless night
They walked all over me.

I was once the colors
Reflected by the sea.
I was so magnificent.
They always looked at me.
They walked all over me.

So, tonight I’m stepping out.
Stepping out past me.
Tonight I’m stepping out
To see what I will be.

Out past the edge, that’s where I’ll be.
Out past the edge is where you’ll find me.

I was once the captain.
The captain of the sea.
They thought because I laughed,
I didn’t take it seriously.

I was once the letters
Handwritten by the sea.
Now that they’ve found power,
They’ve forgotten about me.
They have no use for me.

I was once the captain.
Carrying the sea.
Reflecting all the colors,
Laughing seriously.
I was once the captain.
