As I cross the fierce ocean and stand here, I am absolved. I swam past all the tides and their uproar. I floundered through the dingy waters and struggled in the chilly nights. My search for gratification, deliverance ends here. This was the only thing I wanted to do all my life - to cross the ocean and stand on the other shore and look back. As I look back, I feel absolved. Absolved that I did not let my goals be crushed under someone's tyranny, someone's need to live their projection of life. Thanks to my heart!
