A Metaphor for Life

"There's no turning back up river
There's no use to even try

Whatever lies before you
You've got to see it through
You can't stop half way
And back off and start anew

Its just things aren't as easy
As they look to those outside
It's more than jumping in a boat
And going for a ride"

*excerpt from Boatman's Prayer by Vaughn Short

This can also be described this way (more succinct but less colorful):

The only way out is through it.
