You stand on the shore

You stand on the shore
I don't care who you are
"What have I done?" you cry
"Who am I becoming?"

The waters are now calm
Sad and lifeless forever
The raging waters have stopped
"Who am I becoming?"

Forever will you lament
On this cold shore
Still, all is in bloom
Who are you becoming?
