Ambition

I will go on forever, or so I thought.
Sitting at the helm of the ship
I couldn’t miss the leak
letting the sea in.

I won’t go on forever, or so I thought.
Sitting at the helm of the ship
I couldn’t miss the shore
fast rushing in.

Thank you for your appreciation. It's inspiring me to write more. There is more I have in ready stock but I haven't published them. I just might, thanks to your erudite comments.

The question remains.
Did I [Or will I!] ever reach? :)

Portrayed in its all seriousness and wordly beauty. :)
