Sailing through a crazy world (poem)

29 Oct

There is a way through the craziness

Sailing through a crazy world

In amongst the craziness of this modern life,
Can we find a place where calmness can still prevail?
In amongst these raging seas of trouble and strife,
Can we find a harbour from where hope can set sail?

Those storm clouds of confusion have spread all around,
With thunderbolts of anger lighting up the skies.
Wherever we look, there is no clear ground to be found,
There is no hilltop seen from where the flag of truce flies.

Just what do we do when the world has lost its way?
Is there anything that I can do to change things?
There is no clear path, when I look around this day,
No better life promised with what tomorrow brings.

Perhaps I cannot change anything around me,
So maybe I should stop, just let it all pass me by.
Perhaps there is no better future that I can see,
So maybe it is in today that I should try.

If the outside is lost, then I should let it all go,
Let it take all its craziness out of my view.
Perhaps it is the inner me I should get to know,
Seek within myself for a life I can renew.

I can change who I am, replacing anger with hope,
I can change my life, try to toss out all that sorrow.
Within, I’ll build a ship of love, then release its rope,
And let the wind of kindness steer it through tomorrow.
