Sometimes I walk alone, needing to be
I veer from the path for things to see
Sometimes good, and sometimes bad
But better for the experience had

It is not always my life
And not always my strife
Sometimes I just need to be
A break from the struggle, if you see

Once my fight was all I could see
Until in silence I could truly be free
The mind can be silent, away from the fray
And in peace, for a time, I can finally stay

Back to the battle, but not just yet
Time to celebrate the challenges I've met
A little time so just be calm
To my mind, a little spiritual balm

I don't have to scream and I don't have to wail
Floating on a sea of silence, I can finally sail
The memories are there but fainter now
When I can float in silence now.

Nice Tinman, and especially effective after reading Mark's poem "ship without a sail." Almost two sides of the same boat coin.

Thanks Tinman,

Michael
