Sail Away

Rowing against the tide no more.
Just too tired anywhere to go.
Can I just sway with the wind?
And whatever else that it may bring.
Some judge my intentions to the core.
They fail to understand I have absolutely nothing anymore.
Nothing to gain.
All in vain.
Nothing to lose
I just want to snooze.
When I close my eyes at night.
In my dreams when they're shut tight.
Then morning comes.
Again routine begun.
Another day, another way.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.

Do you know the difference between life and death?
There's nothing worthwhile left to bet.
A dead person has no awareness.
You can stomp on his grave and bones in carelessness.
None of his senses.
No joy or offences.
No pain he feels.
Neither physical nor reel.
You can throw whatever at him.
Verbal abuses or break his limb.
The heart feels no emotion.
And the mind is free of tension.
Dead men are silenced forever.
And they can no longer feel pleasure.
Food and wine, they care for none.
To follow suit someday, everyone.
Sail away, sail away, sail away.
These ashes of mine at the bay.

This poem is purely literary. Please read it with an open mind and out of respect for the written word. To me, writing is my life. There is nothing I love more. I have a very creative imagination. Much of what I write is pure fiction. Please don’t attempt to draw parallels with my life. I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/poignant piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request.

      1. When I’ve read your poem you could be a castaway, lovely castaway and I’ve remembered a song by Mark Knopfler “darling pretty”. A big kiss Ruelha and take care and safe.

          1. GOD CAN FORGIVE ANYTHING OR ANYONE–EVEN ME! ESPECIALLY YOU. PLEASE—MAY WE DISCUSS THIS? NOTHING CAN KEEP YOU FROM GOD’S LOVE—OR MINE! YOU ARE ALREADY BLESSED, WHETHER YOU WISH TO ACCEPT THAT OR NOT. PLEASE LETS DISCUSS IT—BY WHATEVER MEDIA YOU WISH! I WISH I WERE CLOSER SO I COULD HUG YOU BACK TO SPIRITUAL HEALTH! WHY WON’T YOU ACCEPT IT?

            1. I am not seeking absolution, JD. That’s not why I cannot accept praise. It’s because I’m unsure about my stand on certain aspects of spirituality and I’d like to introspect upon those in careful consideration. Of course, nothing can keep me from God’s love. I love God and I’m sure about Hos love for me. But I’m not sure if my approach to reflect His love was too radical. I’d like to do that in the silence of my heart with the assistance of the rest of my faculties. Thank you for your concern and kindness JD.

              1. WELL…IN MY OPINION SCRIPTURE HAS THE WISDOM NECESSARY. INWARD INTROSPECTION HAS LIMITS…BUT YOU, RUELHA, KNOW YOU. I RESPECT YOUR APPROACH, BUT THE BLESSINGS OF GOD THROUGH A PARENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOIR CURRENT SPIRITUAL CONDITTION—BUT CAN HELP YOU THROUGH GOD’S POWER AND WISDOM. WILL YOU LET MY PARENTAL BLESSING OF MY CHILD–YOU—WASH OVER AND BLESS YOU? PERHAPS HIS SPIRIT–THAT IS, GOD’S—WILL ALLOW WISDOM TO EMERGE TO HELP YOU. DO YOU HAVE A DAILY QUIET TIME? ,AY I PLEASE PRAY WITH AND FOR YOU DURING THAT TIME? WHERE TWO OR MORE ARE GATHERED—THERE IS GOD AMONG THEM! 😀 DON;T BE A LONE RANGER—LET ME PRAY AROUND THE EDGES, AT LEAST. I DO THAT PRETTY GOOD OVER THE YEARS!

              2. p,s,—A father’s blessing is not absolution, merely a powerful blessing. absolution in the Protestant model…is between you and God—accepting his forgiveness and mercy! LOVE YOU, MY HONEY CHILD!!!! SONG OF SOLOMON 4:11 (A LITTLE OUT OF CONTEXT—NOT TOO FAR OFF) –DAD ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ 😀 😀 😀

                1. I always accept blessings gracefully from everyone. I really like it when someone blesses me, especially if it is an elder person. It makes me feel more protected.
                  I was referring to this line in your comment, JD :GOD CAN FORGIVE ANYTHING OR ANYONE–EVEN ME!
                  I’m not seeking absoution from God for something specific. Firstly, I’m not hiding from God at all. Like I mentioned above, I believe in God with all of my heart. I have witnessed His love and would like to be a reflection of it.
                  I’m just re-evaluating my approach. I want to be more mellow and horizontal and consider the society and environment around me as the image and likeness of God, rather than a vertical one-on-one, almost radical one-way communication with God. I want my relationship with God to be more practical and less esoteric.
                  What I’m saying is I want to discard the habit and spread more love, joy and peace instead.
                  Mercy and forgiveness I will always seek from God. I think you misunderstood quite a bit.

                  1. PERHAPS…BUT YOUR EXPLAINING YOUR SELF HELPS ME TO CLEAR UP MY OWN MISUNDERSTANDING. WHAT YOU SEEM TO AIM FOR IS INDEED HOW GOD DOES HID BEST WORK IN THIS WORLD—THROUGH HIS PEOPLE MINISTERING TO OTHER PEOPLE. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME AND PATIENCE TO SET ME STRAIGHT!!!!! ❤ AND YOU ARE RIGHT—SOME MAY FIND AA DIRECT RELATIONSHIP VERTCALLY TO BE OF VALUE. BUT A MORE HORIZONTAL APPROACH IS INDEED WHAT SCRIPTURE SAYS GOD WANTS.

          2. PLEASE—LET’S TALK–FB MESSAGING, FB PHONE, LIVE FEED (WHICH YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH) OR EVEN A REAL TELEPHONE CALL! NO MATTER WHAT HAS BEEN DONE, YOU CAN BE SAVED—AS GOD SAYS IN SCRIPTURE,”LET US REASON TOGETHER” ISAIAH 1: 18—HE WILL MAKE YOU WHITER THAN SNOW IN YOUR HEART. PLEASE, RUE! ❤ THESE HEARTS ARE NOT WINDOW DRESSING—GTHEY MEAN I CARE FOR U—KET ME CARE FOR YOU! PLEASE?

            1. I never stopped believing in the joy of salvation. There was never an iota of doubt in that regard, JD. I don’t do calls/video chats at all with anyone. It’s not me. I reply on my blog alone, seldom on other social media channels.
