SAILING NOWHERE


The sea was wide- so blue and cold

I needed to land before- I grew old

Not a pint of anything was still sold

Neither rocks so bright, nor the shining gold.


Birds filled the sky-and fishes, the sea

There was no land- to where I can flee

In the winking waters- I felt its glee

Show me a land where- I can be free


Such a weary travel- To where, I knew not

All was litter- What I'd now got

Oh! Please tell me sea! Is this what I sought?

Such a tiresome battle- But for what was it fought?


The sea was wide-so blue and cold

I needed to land before I grew old

I might never land, may never be bold,

It's now just a life here- With rocks and gold...

Nice, standing in the middle of an ocean so vast that we don't have the courage to go anymore...
but then, life is just one step away they say.
