My Ground Truth

Psychologist | Military-Grade Mindfulness Trainer & Coach | Carsten J. Grimm

The Sailing

Nothing has changed 

Since you caught me in your unfurled sail

Like a shifting trade wind

Sending you across to a warmer ocean.

 

Before your breeze

I would seek to reiterate beginnings

Over and over 

Forgoing those lessons that you would hold for me

In some far off determination

Refusing to see my suspected implication

In future lamented wreckages.

 

I would put stock in signs and symbols

Believing in stacked decks

Providential intersections

Always hoping to have the rules changed.

 

It wasn't until out there on the water

When all my tides had gone too far out

That I began to see the true north

The long sail between narrow straights

Of mutual trim and tackle.

 

Nothing has changed
Since I landed in your sheets
But the hemisphere of my entire world.
