Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
I'm sailing for an island


by Michael Bowman

I'm waiting for an answer
A sound so far that's not been heard
Still searching for the question
To choose which letter forms each word.

I'm planning on an outcome
A journey's end not yet begun
My final destination
This spider's web remains unspun.

I'm looking to a future
As all I know lies in the past
Hoping for a better way
To live my dreams, my first, my last.

I'm sailing for an island
Gold beaches washed by emerald sea
I'll navigate the oceans
This plotted course that's meant to be.
