Once I have left these sullen shores
With my paddles and my oars,
I will not look back over my shoulder with hurting heart
And I will not return from whence I depart.
This is to be a journey like no other previous
Momentous, magnificent,meaningful, mischievous.
In truth, I know not where I will go
Or the unheralded haven of my halo
But I will go because I have the means and the will to go
And I will have no shadow.
The ultimacy of my destiny and my fate
Will Lie in Gods hands worthy of the welcome and the wait.
For this voyage at least if not for others.
Offers not what a simple sailor so easily discovers.,
I will have no crew, no skipper, no pre-demise,,
Only harnassed hope and a sense of enterprise.
Born out of cradled curiosity, atomic adventure.
Never lost but scribed in this deft denture..
I dare to leave behind the flirtations and the favours of the lusting lagoon
If it ever is a day too soon..
There will be no moment for regret.
There will be nothing to forget.
This is to be a voyage without dimension
Timeless and unmeasured in distance, a physical pension.
Oh to have been in the company of sacred ships
That traverse the horizons and the eclipse.,
Ferries and freighters, barges and paddle steamers,
Be they the maritime world of realists and dreamers.
I think I have always been a boat
To Sail the oceans of the world afloat,
To circumnavigate earth’s continental land masses
Amid the giant gorges and crevasses..
I go with wily wonder and aimless abandon,
Oblivious to any penitence.
God alone will be my constant companion
And life itself my daily defence..
I am as unsung as I am safe and sound.
And one day,I know for sure, I will run aground.
I am but an exalted and expectant euphorian,
For now you will know me only as the Taurean.
I am a tried and tested vessel of meagre, mortal means
Education eeked out only by the force of nature’s submarines.
Oh wise and whispering wind take me where I need to go
And where, wind, only you can blow.
The perils of piracy hark the dangers of the mission.
And are transparent in my parting vision.
So as I speak with truth and journey in quest
Peace on earth is that for which I am so boldly blessed.
