I Am Me VII | A Poem by Ajise Vincent

I am a sailor
oaring through life’s
odyssey.
I paddle a meandrous destiny

a tempest of despondency
has been my confidant,
wheedling my esteem to
salivate for death.
yet I am undeterred

I may feel seasick, today,
mourning flashbacks of
drowned dreams
but tomorrow
I will drink
pints of rum in remembrance
at Manhattan
