Missing Person

My life. A boat,
Drifting over the ocean,
Meandering towards an unknown
Destination. There is a port,
Somewhere. I don't know
It's location, or even if
I'm going in the right
Direction. The waves push me
Where they will. I fight to
Control my vessel. How can I
Steer a boat when I don't know
Where I want it to go? Who is
The wind? What do I call the waves?
They try to direct me, but
I reject them. I try to make
My own way, and get lost. Somewhere
I left my life behind. And I
Can't go back and get it.
I'm not sure when I wrote this. It was at a period when I felt particularly helpless, and definitely before I became a X'n. Missing Person's follow-up, Accounted For, was needed after I became a X'n and was written with joy and certainty, as opposed to the confusion and lack of direction that led to this poem.
What's with all the poems?
