- What Matters
As I look out over the windy sea of sand,
As my heart starts to drop,
I realize that I am a captain of a ship
That is going nowhere.
The massive, canvas sails.
The winding, twisting streets.
The feeling of anguished loneliness.
It all seems so unreal, but yet it’s genuine.
As I lower the sails for the night.
I hear the wind singing in hushed tones.
As the sea of sand starts to clear away.
I see the sight of a mysterious object.
In the far-off distance I can faintly see
The dull image of a city on the horizon.
It is a mystical, magical mirage,
A place filled with unlimited possibilities.
But before I could get there
I would have to cross the vast, barren ocean.
I regret putting my sails down
Now that I have found a new destination.
As I look around at the deserted ship,
I realize my life is missing something.
I then wake up startled and realize I am
Alone in the middle of an endless, dusty sea.
