I Am a Ship

By Stefan Carey

I am a Ship,
Far from any shore,
Riding the seas,
aimlessly, like a gull in midflight.

See the dawn,
Feel the light;
Life flows and washes over my decks,
The winds of change fill my sails,
as I go ever forwards
across the mighty waves
of mother sea.

And now like a fresh wind,
and a new day,
under a clear blue sky,
so infinite;
it is time to change our course.

Turn the mighty rudder
towards the Sun.
