In the dark early morning hours
my mind, like an overladen ship,
wanders off course
and visits unscheduled ports -
Doubt, Worry, Sadness, Hurt, Anger
and takes on dangerous cargo
that makes it list and roll,
in danger of capsizing.
I have to hand over the rudder,
let my Captain take control,
for He knows my ship's true course.
He will steer me to the safest routes,
guide me through the cruellest storm
and lead me to the clear blue water.
