Adventure is not safe.
Staying home presents embrace, holding me to safety.
Here I stand against the wind
Here I ebb and flow against the waves
Here the albatross mocks me
in his flight through this disturbance
against even my sanity.
Sanity is not the motivation
bringing me here
into elements not my own.
Ahead are smoother days.
If I can outlive
break against my questing heart.
