The word: Voyage

The thing about the voyage
is that I was in it before knowing where I was headed
and where it would end.

Port and calm were promises. And premises.

Reality was lurching from squall to squall.
Rough seas would explode. Unannounced,
unwelcome meteors of unease and shock.

How could I or anyone prepare for the voyage?

Man overboard. Then woman. Then others.
Swirling away, sinking, returning as memories,
but gone.

As a child, I thought a long voyage took me where I wanted to go.
Instead, voyages take me where they are headed.
I follow along.
