Treasure Island

Lynne FincherSpringarden


Steady Course


The little things in life these days
They seem to overwhelm

It often makes me wonder just
Whose posted at the helm

Of this my voyage onward
The ship of life it seems

Is sailing round in circles
And things aren't what they seem

Though stormy seas may threaten
To strand me in high tide

My faith will never falter
And my fear I cast aside

For steady on my course
As the sea I will travail

I'll reach life's destination
And onward I will sail
