The Compass

I’ve got a sailor tattoo

A compass rose to direct

marking where momentum must flow.

Reminder of what to put into the sails

and propel forward.

CAST OFF!

SET A COURSE!

 

Where are we headed?

Easy days were to lie ahead…

Somewhat digress

To a paradise of more trials.

 

Enemies are diehard catchers

Against the current they go

Starting a whirlpool

To a downward damnation.

 

Sadness wells in your chest

Opening yourself to the advisory

Upon crashing into the rocks

Thinking of the dead routes

“Hell is a place called home”

 

NO!

ONWARD YOU MUST GO!

Run forward- open the sails

Thrust yourself into the unknown

Her name is right there

 

                                    You just need to say it

                                                                        (a smile breaks his lips)

 

…onto the next…
