My course is set for an uncharted sea
with waves unkept and no one watching me,
is a line I wrote when I saw no path but didn't care
because I thought I could just flow through the breeze.
Though it took a while I finally found
that my path was really about creating sound
and what better way for a poem to help
than for my own poem to lead me aground.
While I am no longer sailing the vast sea
looking for some sign to show where I should be,
I finally realize where my goal lies,
and I really have to thank poetry.
