The fog

The fog
I stood on the dock- Looked out to sea.
Wondered would I leave -if a ship came for me?
Would I climb aboard -go forth and explore?
Would I brave the unknown- open that door?

Was a dense grey fog -a come creeping in;
Like a cat from- the misty sea.
Knew the truth; the fear- the dark side of me;
Who I am -in reality.

The fog’s my indecision -my cargo to unload
If I am to find my freedom- I must board and go.

I’ve grown bored with -the predictable;
With always- playing it safe.
Bored with the insufferable sameness
Of my secret hiding place.

Oh the waves, the waves – they keep a calling;
Come forth boy -and step on aboard.
The unknown holds a promise, a new life
A young heart- just cannot ignore.

Thru the fog came a light- shining and bright
Was a ship from - faraway seas.
But I had to ask –I just had to know
Has she come all this way for me?

Her sails are torn and tattered -she wears her battle scars
As if they’re medals of honor- tarnished silver stars.

The fog’s my indecision -my cargo to unload
If I am to find my freedom- I must board and go.

I’ve grown bored with the predictable
With always playing it safe.
Bored with the insufferable sameness;
Of my secret hiding place.

So I step aboard -go thru that door
And sail with-the rising tide.
Not knowing when- or what will come
But knowing- that I am alive.
