Beyond the Breakwater

I have navigated my own life

This vessel may not agree

Melting into the horizon

Becoming one with the sea

Lessons come from failure

Bailing water from the storm

Setting my solitary journey

Refusing to conform

The wind will rise again

Filling my tattered sail

Cutting the angry whitecaps

Forcible as a mighty whale

When I look into those eyes

Rescuing this lost castaway

Embraced by a calm, safe harbor

Dropping anchor I will stay
