Small Boats Adrift.

Time passes people stare
But no one really is aware
Of what you feel, or see or do
Or what your life is going through

Small boats adrift in passing time
All looking for some kind of sign
To show us where it all went wrong
To fill the void and make us strong

Together we are a force indeed
But all alone, a windswept seed
That falls upon some barren ground
To shrivel up without a sound.

This movie sux and I'm sorry I paid the nine bucks to see it....Sorry, Graham...I was thinking of the Star Wars IV, I think.. This poem, on the other hand was well worth the price of admission..What a bleak outlook on it all..VERY nicely penned, buddy...len

The flow and rhyme to this is outstanding! The meaning is just as powerful...we ARE but individual seeds, when taken as one, but together, we can become something mighty. Though we might feel like we are all just adrift, most of the time, there's a goal somewhere in mind, and the winds might toss us about, but we usually DO make our destination :)
Big hugs to ya! and I loved this write...
