O Sailor!

O Sailor!

It’s the way I want to be

It’s beyond the pale for me

It’s what being unknown is all about

It’s the path I choose to take

It’s the destiny I make

It’s my life now – the only way out

Out of circulation in another dimension

I carry you right inside my heart

As we’re one, moulded together

Always and forever, never apart

It’s a world where I’m alone

It’s a place where I can atone

It’s a severing of all ties I know

I feel so free and yet I’m bound

I’m invisible and yet around

I know I’ve got to go with the flow

My life now is like a sailboat ride,

Destiny is the wind – with you by my side,

I’m the sailor, who sets the course,

Empowered by an incredible force.

    It’s the way I want to be
    ^^The opening line says and shows that this is how
    your life was and how it will be! Just like sailing in the
    rough seas of life. Well penned and welcome to the site!
