Beyond The Breakers

Beyond The Breakers

Out beyond the breakers
Far from all the takers
Who shattered all my dreams from coming true

The posers and fakers
The beaters and shakers
Who paralleled the shore with the Big Blue

I got through to the other side
I kept sailing every tide
Just in time to hoist up the moonrakers

And catch the wind, while heaving to
Out on the vast and azure blue...
Searching my true North...beyond the breakers.
