The bottom is a long way down,
as is stretching to reach it would work.
Before one reaches, hits the bottom,
one must fail, suffer unconquerable adversity.
All will be well, with strength,
Like the sun rising in the East,
each day begins anew.
A long way from the bottom,
one finds his place.
Swimming in the sea of life,
a line, cast down will pull one up.
A long way from the bottom.
