Fog and Smoke

On a ship in a foggy harbor,
On water I don’t wish to bother,
I steer a certain path to take,
Unsure of this guided mistake.

I light a cigarette to burn,
With every puff I come to learn,
Just as much as the smoke that leaves
My lungs to join the fog with ease.

What things do fog and smoke discuss?
Issues of swirling smoky trust?
Or does the smoke just interfere
With foggy sounds I wish to hear?

I do not know what will happen,
Or who to refer to as captain.
He may be just my outer shell,
Or my cigarette, I just can’t tell.

He may be just my lonely mind,
Deeper thoughts of a lonely kind.
He may be in the smoky mist,
Floating fog with a spirit twist.

Who captains this ship I stand on?
What tune would be his captain’s song?
Being so lost I just might miss
My chance to learn and grow from this.

For deep within my pulsing core
I seek to search and learn much more.
I’ve been captain all along,
The fog and smoke are my song.

The ship is steered by my glowing heart,
My compass of life through the dark.
Be whole in an uncertain time,
This smoky journey is now mine.
