Man at bay, unity away

 

                                       -man at bay, unity away-
     I stepped to the shore
             alongside the unity 
                  of my whole being and watched
                                          all that i tried to fix
                                                      happen
    I saw pieces
                       trying to be a piece
    I saw clothes tattered very bad
                       trying to make a clad
    i saw deltas flowing
                       answering the seas calling
    i saw too the sky
                    and ground on one side to lie,
    but this storm of misunderstanding
                          that swept me to shore
   makes every other man stand at bay
                          and unity with the island far away

                                       from tales of the sailor.
