Settling

I think I need to accept

settling down is not a notion

I will never settle down

I am like the ocean

I float and I drift

looking for a drop-off point

or a wave’s lift

I think I need to accept

that I am jetsam and flotsam

I am part of the waves and their motion

and that is all I ever am

never settling down

I sink or swim

but I never drown.

    “I am part of the waves and their motion”
    ~ Profound insight.

    Lest we forget, our Spaceship Earth not only rotates on its own axis, but also around the Sun at the center of our Solar System. We are constantly in motion. “Settling down” is an illusion.
