    ANCHOR


    A man struggles to keep afloat
    in cold, turbulent waters,
    a kind hearted woman for a time
    offers him her life's boat
    to save his battered life...

    Stubbornly he refuses the offer,
    pushing the boat away:
    she knows as long as he's able
    to keep his head above the waves,
    there's no chance he will ever change.
    He won't allow her to find her wings
    and break free of his endless maze
    of tradition and materialism.
    In desperation, she decides
    to throw him an anchor instead,
    hoping he will realize
    the depth of his predicament.

    No longer looking back,
    she brings her rejected offer
    upon the shores of a new world
    and throws away the oars...
    She has discovered her wings
    and the freedom of flight,
    never to be a slave again!
