Captain Of Our Own Ship
All of us in this human race
have trials and tribulations to face.
We're special and complex in our own way
with simple joys and hopes to display.
Night can be magic and days hold delight
for those who use their wise insight.
For in our hands we hold the key
to wellness and recovery.
A life-long journey's what we're on
with love and laughter sometimes gone.
But in the end it's ours to keep
for we've learned how to swim the deep.
Captain of our very own ship
at times we might just make a slip.
Tossed about on a sea of disaster
yet we need simply to tread faster.
Need to gather strength from within
for there's the prize of life to win.
Pages in our book to fill
and getting that boulder up that hill.
Successes might be big or small-
it matters not, be proud of them all.
You're such a wonderment in your own way
so sing out loud- you've a lot to say!
