Chewing On A Whale Bone

  

Chewing on a whale bone

A hero am I to be

Truth to be my own

Risky ventures to the sea

Dying since we were born

Break away from known ways

Take life by the horns

Find your own path home some day

Clocks ticking as we breathe

Do you know what you believe

The Sea Villanelle

capsize-184167

A love that’s only known to me
Weigh anchor – Sail with the tide
When I’m off exploring the sea

A lass that’s sassy & steadily free
Couldn’t forget her, Lord knows I tried
A love that’s only known to me

When the winds cry like a Banshee
The ocean will be my endless guide
When I’m off exploring the sea

Venturing off to a land of palm trees
Needing to nurse my wounded pride
A love that’s only known to me

In spite of life, still merely a latchkey
Waiting for when my sails have dried
When I’m off exploring the sea

A pirate – all I ever wanted to be
I’ll forever hold who’s on my side
A love that’s only known to me
When I’m off exploring the sea
