Boat - by Rand

Imagine the first
person ever to
step into a boat
and drift away
from the land

In your mind is
the person important?
Popular or famous?
Royalty perhaps?
Or maybe the storied
inventor -- launching
to cheers and adoration?

Or is your imaginary
initiate being punished?
A victim of prejudice or
involuntary test subject?

Are our pioneers brave
or addicted to attention
or do they have no choice?

Who jumps
who falls
and who is

  1. It is my dream
    To float along,
    To gently drift
    As in a song.
    To see those stars
    High above me
    And know what it is
    To really feel free.
    I wish for currents,
    Not for rotes,
    But most of all
    To be a boat.
