To discover myself is my mission today
But the chances are slim if I don’t know the way.

It’s so hard to accomplish this goal without knowing
Just where I have gone and just where I am going.

Am I seeking a part of myself that was lost
When the storms of this life left my boat turned and tossed?

Who am I that I seek as I trample this shore?
Am I me here today, or as I was before?

Is it me that I hunt for, or just an ideal?
Can I separate dreams from the truth? Who is real?


Was that me that I saw heading off ‘round the bend?
Will I find myself there, or go off the deep end?
