Hard is the Journey of a Seaman – Sunday Photo Fiction

A pair of Anchors
A pair of Anchors

Hard is the journey of a seaman
Staying on his ship in his cabin
Not seeing land on months on end
Working on holiday or the weekend
Not seeing children as they grow
As long as he keeps sending dough
Not being there on every occasion
Even though his heart is breaking
Life is tough to pursue his dreams
Keeps himself sane by his daydreams
His voyage far and wide around the world
As long as he doesn’t go to the underworld
So many places to an arduous travel end
Leaving behind loved ones and all friends
He yearns for the anchor to bring him home
Enough roaming, just bring him to his home

  1. My uncle was the radio operator on a merchant marine vessel after WW2, and my paternal great-grandfather captained a wooden ship.
    You have captured the feelings and dreams of a sailor so well.
