On the boat of life

I am making my way through the vast ocean
Destination unknown and direction unsure
My sails are torn from so many tempests
How much do I have left before my last haven?
Which cape is better?
My steering is wavering
And I am not the captain of the ship...
Sneeking among the reefs
One of them perhaps is waiting for me.

Sometimes I feel under my feet the plank
From which I could dive
Wondering what would be hidden in the dark depth
But uncertain of the answer I swiftly come back
On board!

Help thy brother's boat across, and lo! thine own has reached the shore.
Hindu Proverb
