Full Speed Ahead

Post by P on Sat Oct 25, 2014 1:48 pm

Heres one which has been around for a while, something to do with sailing through life perhaps?

Full Speed Ahead.

Well. Here I am on the bridge of my ship,
And a fine vessel she is too.
Solid, reliable, robust, secure.
Years to build from origami plans.
Made from the roots of mountains
Smelted in Hera's imortal flame.
Strong from the labour of others.
A self contained environment.

Enclosed.

Opulant with every luxury,
Surrounded by every modern comfort.
Warm against the icy seas below.
Safe from the frosty blast outside.
Contained, secure, safe, complete.
Floodlit from within.
Insulated from the cold events of life.
Steered by white stars in a clear dark moonless sky.

"Hard a starboard" and off we go.
Full speed ahead,
To oportunities new.
A prosperous future.
Cutting through opposing waves far below.
Engines thumping.
Larger than life.
Running to a tight schedule.
In a hurry.
Efficient.
No time to enjoy the view.
No time to talk.
No time to relax.
No time to think.
No continuity.
No respect, no fear, no time.

What a ship!
What a name.
Reflecting my importance.
Untouchable, unstopable, indestructable, as I steam ahead through life.

What?
The name of my ship of life?

 

"TITANIC"

How many iceberg's we hit in life? We can either sink with the ship.. or live to sail another day.

Very well written P (-:

Sometimes it pays to have something which floats handy, like a large box.
