Drifting. by Anthony King


I find myself a drift upon a sea
A sea of endless pity
Like a drink that never runs dry.
This drink…
This drink called life.
Rolling on the evening tides
Drifting further out to sea
Away from anything…
Everything … Just drifting.
The sun it rises then it sets
Like a day upon one’s life
Coming…
And going…
Never ending
Still drifting away on the tide.
