For thirty years I rode this ship, retching off the side.
Finally got my sea legs, now I look ahead and find
Air so rich; that water, blue…
The sun looks proud of me, and I may yet impress the moon.

Now the children call me captain.
So, I teach them what I can.
Keep trying even when it makes you sick,
When you fall down, stand.
Because when you raise up on your toes,
Your eyes, they raise up, too.
The moment you embrace your dread,
Life changes point of view.
