Lonely Ship

Sat, 10/06/2018 - 14:03 -- MelRed

My lonely ship,

Navigating the endless sea

Of work,

Of love,

Of life.

Feeling lost,

Without an anchor

Or a compass to point me back north,

I lose myself in the waves

Of emotion and confusion.

I think I have no guidance

And nowhere left to turn,

Until I look above

My lonely ship.

I remember the stars--

The stars are everything.

Teachers, family, friends.

Trials, lessons,victories.

Everything is improving

And guiding me

Towards my goals.

I glance back at my life before

And see the struggles I have overcome.

I am not alone.

Never alone

And suddenly,

My lonely ship

Is far from lonely anymore.
