Floating off on the sea, pulled out by the tide.
Starting a new adventure with the stars as my guide.
The only sound is the water flowing past the hull.
There is no need for light for the moon is bright and full.
I am on this journey alone, but I am not afraid.
I laid out a plan, and bowed my head and prayed.
The wind lifts my hair and cools the salt on my skin.
Happiness overcomes me, and I cannot help but grin.
I am free of the chains that held me for so long.
I am ready to write my own story and sing my own song.
