we all float on

ships float from the safe waters
into the unknown
the wind blows their sails
into different directions

the moon hovers along the horizon
its light
a beacon for all those who wish to follow
into foreign docks
trading in different trinkets
and unknown pleasures

some boats pass each other
never giving a slight notice
ignoring the signs
sailing their own path
they are the bigger boats

the little ones huddle together
joining by ropes
sharing stories of adventure
and of delicious banquets
companionship amongst the seas

the sea can be rough
it can be calm
but it all depends on the sailor
and when he choosing to sail
for sailing into the maelstrom
can lead you out
while those who stay anchored
may be sunk by the waves…

we all float on
