I hold the last timber of Theseus
Its surface smooth and worn
Miles have passed beneath this wood
O'er yawning depths has it borne

Warped with age it has become
Now thin and soft with the sea
But is it the actual final piece
Of the vessel, or is it of me?

The ship still stands in the harbour
Its name freshly painted off the bow
A testament to the miles I have come
Across the horizon, the here, and the now

Every man changes with the tide
The rise and fall of the moon
Even the stars will move from their sets
And for me, the winds come soon

Whatever the look or the shape of us now
The carvings adorning our oars
There is something inside that remains who we are
However strange the shores

just as feathery as ever | portfolio | a poignant quote
