Drawn in the Current

So much of my life I have tried to set my own course
To sail to destinations of my own choosing, charting my path
Powering through the waves ignoring the push and the draw
But now I sit aimlessly enjoying the wind and the current
That draw me to places I never before imagined
And perhaps before it was all about the illusion of control
The continual application of power and steering
Trying to capture the wind and waves and use them for my purpose
Yet, perhaps the underlying rhythms of the deep knew all along
Where my ship was sailing and slowly but surely exerted its pull
To a new world beyond the edges of my dreams
