Belonging is More Than a Place,


 


When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind. ~Seneca

 

You don’t have to be a ship to be wrecked

Nor do you have to be in peril to be lost at sea

Yet we lose our way on the gravel road

Where we forgot our atlas and the key

The seagull knows where he is headed

The black bird always knows his place

But mankind loses his footing and purpose

Always running in a hollow race

You don’t have to be a ship to be wrecked

Nor be in peril to be lost at sea

But you need to know your purpose

If you want to know where it is you should be.
