Crank the anchor, stare as it lifts,
magical boat sails to then drift.
Powerful views cause thoughts to shift,
unplanned hiatus, cruises swift.
Winds rock the boat from here to there,
life shakes me up and feels unfair.
Tears lost at sea, where no one cares,
absent from life yet still aware.
I grab the steer, balanced at once.
then trim the sail to tie each knot.
Harmonize with my offbeat heart,
convince fate to change story plot.
Waves carry us to where we land,
both keel and feet enjoy the sand.
This life is sweet, from where I stand,
infinite destiny at hand.
