Dear Goth

Chapter XXXI

Sailor

They say anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm,

This is probably true, look around you

You see when people’s lives are calm and the weather is clear

They have no problems to deal with.

But first sign of storm or bad weather and they sail for land,

Because the sea is unforgiving and they fear shipwreck.

How many sailors do you know sail into bad weather?

Not the good ones

.

But there is always a time a storm overtakes you and you have no choice but to ride it out, then they always look to someone else to hold the helm in stormy weather.

When the waves break below the deck of your ship, your free to sail anywhere you want, but when the waves are above the deck of your fine ship and you think doom is near then it’s only where the sea wants to take you.

Our bodies are like ships at sea,

The weather is our emotional state.

When the sea is calm, anyone can hold the helm.

When the weather rages and the winds blow cold

When the waves are higher than the deck of your ship

When shipwreck is certain, Do you know who is captain?

#############################

Most will never never know the storms I have endured.

Thirty-nine years at sea; a twenty year long storm

Sailed me to places far, a lost sailor in life

Shipwreck and doom are certain.
