Outward Bound

Outward Bound was created

To keep young men from drowning.

During WWII, when their ships went down,

Too many were drowning.

This seems like pertinent information

As we weather our own rough seas.

So when you are tossed into the deep

Take off your clothing- it’s weighing you down

( As in- Drop Your Baggage)

And let yourself sink below the surface

Resting there in the quiet

And when you need a breath

Kick back up to the surface

For a breath

Only to go back into the quiet

Of the sea below.

Through the long night

Breathing and not breathing

In the Great Ocean.
