Steady The Ship – Written Monday 22nd March 2021 (Aged 46)

Steady The Ship

i see her
chasing happiness
as she tries
to work out
what happiness
actually means
i see her
sculpting dreams
but the pot
it always
falls off the wheel
and these spectrums
articulate how you feel
i see her
trying to find
a steady hand
to guide the tiller of her mind
but all those seas
begin to bind
all the things she is due
deficits join together
and chaos is never new
calm waters it seems
impossible to find
try to steady the ship
with the tiller of the mind
