Sailing


When the waves flow

Into the dark

And the night hides

Behind the stars

I set sail

Towards horizon

Following the map

With location marked

Along came a cyclone

Ripping off the mast

I hear the skies roar

Like it’s the God’s wrath

“It’s not easy, son

To find your destiny

Neither is it far

Keep your boat afloat and row

Go on despite the scars

I hear my father say

The journey still counts

Though soul is torn apart

Woke up to the dawn,

Drifting with the tides

Where have all the birds gone?

Don’t tell me it’s a sign

One day I’ll write my chronicles

Whose life will outlive mine

Let’s go forward now,

Make haste there’s no time

With death waiting down below

And heavens soaring high
