SAILING



All my life
Seems like I've been on a boat
Drifting
Rocking
Sometimes floating still
Voyaging different waters
Never committing
To drop anchor
At any port in my life
Afraid
I would stop sailing

    One reading one could give to this poem is that this person is always on the go, a busy life when it comes to action and he or she is afraid to take a break from all of that.
    Good read!
