Shattered on shores lie all the wreckage of hopes and dreams

Rocks and shoals bar the way to safe harbour

Winds howl, waves roar

And a life lies in pieces on unrelenting stone

This is the time and place

To get back in the game

Take up hammer and nails

Put the pieces back together

Make a raft, wait for the tide

Float your way off the rocks

And back to open sea

This is the time to try again
