The Voyage

"Existence is an ocean." The body is a vessel, this life is a sea. God brings the winds that fill its sails, But it's captain is only me. Other ships may come and fire against us My crew may plot a mutiny, If succeed they do, and if I lose My ship goes down with me. No one else will tell me how, Or why, or what, or when. Till the sea swallows us up, And it's waters birth us anew. Till I say good bye, the final time, And sail those seas again.
