Though boiling seas and tempests swirl, though tossed and rocked in frenzy, I am resolute and I am free; captive and hopeless on the breast of this rudderless craft is NOT ME! ... I am not hopeless! I should shun the safety of land where I have been more captive - circled by those who would use more of my being, carve more of my soul than these beasts who only wish for food. Were I to hail that distant ship would they not return me to bondage? If freedom is the right to chose that which I might be restricted by, might I choose this, and at last
- be FREE?
Inspired by Winslow Homer's painting "The Gulf Stream"
