I sail upon the fathomless ocean

through swirling storms and catastrophic currents

in search of a tropical island

where I could anchor my weather-beaten sea sick soul.


A crew-less captain on a long voyage

with the course set and ravaged by plundering,

thought piracy and natural disasters

Each cast off guided by the lighthouse of wisdom.


Tempestuous tides and ebbing of hostile waves

altered the course many a time,

tempering, sculpting and transforming

my psyche into an iron-willed survivor. 


Daring every typhoon, defying all impediments

to chivy childhood aspirations and to live exuberantly.
