First poem of the blog!

Just a couple days ago, I edited my Oct 2nd post to add that I might occassionally post poems here. Then last night I said on Facebook that I miss writing poetry. Well, here’s one already. Simple and short. Nothin’ grand. Enjoy, few blog-readers of mine!

“Vessel” (Does it even need a title?)

I’m aware that I’m a vessel, like a vessel on the sea.
Won’t You please become my rudder? Let your love control me.
There’s a war behind the wheel over what my face will see,
And the members of my crew divide on where they want to be.

Any day this vessel, mortal, could descend into the sea,
Even worse, it could stay floating, but drift far away from Thee.
But I know, because my Captain lives and vanquished death’s decree,
That though the greedy ocean licks its lips, it will not swallow me.
